2019 Chester County Studio Tour County Collector

The Chester County Studio Tour wants to make art affordable for everyone! 

Five O'clock Martini original oil painting by Merrill Weber
As a participating artist in the Chester County Studio Tour, I was given the opportunity to create one unique 6x6-inch framed piece of original art that I will sell for $75 in order to show that art can be everywhere! This year, I created the oil painting "Five O'clock Martini" pictured above

The early bird gets the worm, or my County Collector piece in this case. The first person to visit me once the show opens has FIRST DIBS!  The show runs Saturday, May 18 from 10 am to 6 pm, with the second and last day being Sunday, May 19, 2019 from 11 am to 5 pm. Rain or shine! 

SEE 11 ARTISTS WITHOUT HAVING TO MOVE YOUR CAR!

From the tour's website:  Whether this is your first time buying original art or you are a seasoned collector, the tour now has something for everyone. In some instances, a favorite artist might be out of someone's price range, but now with the County Collectors' Club, art is within reach. Some art enthusiasts are out of wall space yet enjoy the thrill of adding new art to their collection. This becomes possible with the County Collectors Club since the pieces are considered normal.

All County Collector pieces are uniform in size and framed with a simple, elegant black frame. To assure quality and uniqueness, all pieces will have a specially-marked certificate printed on the back commemorating this year's studio tour. The County Studio Tour is asking the artist to create only one commemorative piece of art, so plan your day and get out early to ensure you have art on your walls by Monday!
