Here’s a way to get away from it all this weekend: The Camelback Studio Tour and Art Sale gives guests the opportunity to view and purchase pieces from 14 different artists in the intimate setting of four home art studios in Sherwood Heights, Scottsdale. 

“The Camelback Studio Tour and Art Sale not only offers art enthusiasts a chance to mix and mingle with their favorite artists and see current works in their own studios,” Lynn Gustafson of the South Scottsdale Art Alliance says on the event’s website, “it is also a great chance to buy local art direct from the source for holiday gift giving.”

The tour is self-guided, meaning visitors can check out the displays in any order they like. The locations are navigable via foot, bike or car. (Check here for a map.)

In light of the pandemic, hand sanitizer is available and 6-foot social distancing is required. 

“We also will be outdoors, and will take all the precautions to keep everyone safe,” said ceramicist Judith Amiel-Bendheim, who will be participating in the Camelback Studio Tour for the fourth year. “Our tables will be spread out, so we will keep distance from each other. Masks are mandatory!”

The event will run Saturday, Nov. 7, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.
