12th annual On & Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour
More than 80 artists will participate in the 12th annual On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour presented by Bihl Haus Arts from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, February 16 and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, February 17 in San Antonio’s Deco District.
“Fred” is a self-guided tour of private homes, art studios and galleries of more than 80 artists, including painters, sculptors, photographers and metal smiths. The studio tour kicks off with an On and Off Fred Autograph Party and opening reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, February 15 at Bihl Haus Arts, 2803 Fredericksburg Road. Music is by Los Nahuatlatos.
David Guerrero, who specializes in watercolors and metal works, is one of the founding members of Fred. He enjoys interacting with visitors who make a stop at his Monticello Park home during the two-day event. “I like talking to them. They’re really interested in what we do,” he said, adding that he and his wife, Maria, who makes jewelry and yard art, have invited four other artists to display their works at the Guerrero home. They will sell stained glass, chair art, and weaving.
Last year, more than 2,500 locals and visitors walked, biked and drove up and down a 5-mile stretch of Fredericksburg Road to get a first-hand look at the artists working in their studios and to purchase their art, McIntyre said.
Attendees can purchase either the hardcopy color catalog, consisting of a map to help people plan their route, artist bios and an image of their work, or the online catalog for $10.
