The 2011 South Orange and Maplewood Artists Studio Tour will be held this year on Sunday, June 5, from 11 am to 5pm. Artists will be opening their studios to visitors and exhibiting at the many art venues throughout the two towns, in a community-wide, day-long celebration of SOMA’s vibrant art scene. Presented by 1978 Maplewood Arts Center and the Pierro Gallery of South Orange, this self-guided tour allows viewers to meet local artists in their workspaces, explore the many galleries around town, and have the opportunity to purchase art from more than 60 participating painters, sculptors, photographers, printmakers, jewelers and craftspeople, many of them new to the tour this year. Art will also be on view at many local businesses, at 1978, the Baird Center and Pierro Gallery, and at the Maplewood Municipal Building and Walsh Gallery at Seton Hall University.
