Dear Artists and Galleries:

The 2011 Heart of Art Studio & Gallery Tour is:
   October 15th and 16th, 2011
   11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

We need YOUR participation in this year’s event. We are reaching out to all art galleries and professional quality artists in LaPorte County.

Marketing Efforts: With an early start this year, our marketing efforts are much greater.
  • Heart of Art Studio and Gallery Tour is being promoted by the LaPorte County Convention and Visitors Bureau in the 2011 Visitor’s Guide, on their website, and in several other publications. They will continue to advertise a picturesque tour of LaPorte County that showcases the area’s art and its artists at work.
  • Over 2,000 Save the Date cards already distributed.
  • A brochure for participating Heart of Art artists and the LaPorte County Convention and Visitors Bureau to distribute.
  • Availability for visitors and patrons to download the brochure and a map from the Heart of Art website to help them travel around the county with greater ease. 

Here is what we need: Interested artists and galleries fill out the 2011 Heart of Art contract attached to this email and mail it along with 3 jpeg images of your work and your payment ($150 for individual artists and $250 for galleries) to:
  Heart of Art
  P.O. Box 9311
  Michigan City, IN 46361-9311

The contract and fee must be received by August 2 2011.

If you are considering the event, but have reservations about your personal studio as a location, you may choose to display your work at another artist’s studio, at a gallery, or at one of the several locations that are interested in hosting artists.

Please consider joining the Heart of Art Studio & Gallery Tour and help to create a greater and stronger artist community within LaPorte County.
