Have you ever purchased a piece of art and didn’t know what to do with it? If you’ve always wanted to create a gallery wall in your home, or incorporate art throughout your home, this tour is for you. On January 30, join us for Arts Huntsville’s inaugural Art Tour of Homes.
Five local art enthusiasts will open their home to inspire visitors to start or grow their collection of art. The Art Tour of Homes will take tour goers from Monte Sano to Twickenham, to the Medical District and Jones Valley. Attendees will be delighted by a variety of collections and décor styles. By showcasing how art is part of living spaces, Arts Huntsville hopes to create a greater understanding of how anyone at any price point can use art to enhance their environments. Each home and collection tells a story of its own and offers a glimpse at the pieces and artists your neighbors love. This will also serve as an opportunity to learn about the Huntsville area’s growing and thriving arts community.
“We have a tremendous growing and vibrant visual arts community,” said Allison Dillon-Jauken, executive director of Arts Huntsville. “We hope this tour will encourage people to collect local art, to grow their collections and to make art part of their everyday life.”
The Art Tour of Homes will feature:
- The Five Points home of Sue and Steve Johnson (1005 Wells Avenue)
- The Twickenham home of Cheryl and Ken Hovanes (414 Eustis Avenue)
- The Medical District home of Cindy Hallman (120 Bibb Road)
- The Monte Sano home of Peggy and Jim Bilbro (4017 Panorama Drive)
- The Jones Valley home of Lara Isbell and Kent Chojnacki ( 1237 Deborah Drive)
Tour attendees will also be provided with a list of local resources for starting or growing their art collections.
The Art Tour of Homes will be held on January 30, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the homes on the day of the event. You can start the tour at any of the five homes. Advance tickets may be purchased at the Arts Huntsville offices at 700 Monroe St, Suite 2 by cash or check.
