2021 marks the 18th annual FMVA Studio Crawl, the Fargo-Moorhead Visual Artists’ largest event. This year 38 participating local artists clean up their studios and invite the public to see where the creative magic happens.
Studio Crawl events will take place the weekend of October 2 and 3 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Crawlers will have the opportunity to connect with local artists, build up their art collections, witness artist demonstrations and perhaps even enjoy an occasional refreshment or hors d’oeuvre along the way.
Past crawls have attracted as many as 5,000 guests, with nearly 15,000 visits.
Participants include emerging artists, established artists and arts educators. Studios include home studios, downtown studios, and co-ops. Each year a juror is selected from the regional art community to review potential participants’ applications.
Artists participating in the studio crawl work in a wide variety of media, whether it straddles the fine line of folk art and fine art, such as Fargo-based artist MaryJo Caley’s pysanka (Ukrainian Eggs), or “sewing artist” Cynthia McGuire Thiel, who accepts custom sewing commissions. Throw in some raku-fired pottery, ceramics, fiber arts, watercolor, acrylic, oil, photography, wood carving and so much more.
This year, NDSU art education students invite the public to participate in an “electrifying” hands-on activity for all ages, that explores electricity, drawing, and balance with repurposed and upcycled items.
