From an RV parked in Deep River, to homes overlooking the Connecticut River, the annual River Valley Art Tour (Sept. 18 and 19) winds through 22 Essex, Chester and Deep River locations with works by 42 local artists.
In some instances, artists are sharing a space so tour goers will be able to see the diverse work of several artists under one roof. All art will be for sale, and in many locations, beverages and snacks will be served.
During the tour weekend, there is also work by all the tour artists on the walls of Essex Art Association Gallery, 10 North Main St., and on Friday, Sept. 17, there will be a reception at the gallery from 5 to 7 p.m. with safely served food and drink.
The artists belong to River Valley Artists, a loosely formed group of Chester, Essex and Deep River artists (and a few others from neighboring towns) who also show at Earth and Fire Art Studio in Essex where you can see more of their work during the tour.
The tour runs both Saturday, Sept. 18 and Sunday, Sept. 19 from 10 to 5 p.m. Mask wearing is requested indoors.
