Cross Timbers Artists Guild Studio Tour

The Cross Timbers Artists Guild is a group of artists who live in the north Texas area (near Dallas and very close to the DFW Airport--primarily Flower Mound, Argyle, Copper Canyon, Double Oak and Grapevine).  Starting on Saturday morning and continuing on Sunday, you can visit any or all of the artists’ homes and see their work.  There is no fee, you just drive from home to home and visit as long as you’d like.  It’s quite a varied group, with art ranging from pottery, painting, stained glass, fine furniture, woodturning, sculpture, weaving, and, of course, quilting.  Our primary mission is to inform the community about the art that is happening right in their neighborhood, and to encourage artistic endeavors of all kinds.  We have a relationship with some of the local public schools and encourage the students to come on the tour, too.  So if you are going to be in our area, please visit us. 

Our website has a map and lots of information about our group:

To start the weekend’s activities, beginning at 7:00 Friday evening, we will have a reception at our gallery, which is located in The Shops at Highland Village, northwest corner of 407 and 2499  (the gallery is next door to James Avery Jewelry).  Please come by for some refreshments and live music.
