Local teacher’s art part of annual tour

By Gigi Ekstrom

On a fall weekend in 1992, six artists in the White Rock Lake area opened their studios to the public. That humble beginning has continued and grown while providing a rewarding experience for art enthusiasts of all ages. When the 2019 White Rock Lake Artists’ Studio Tour opens its doors this weekend, Lakehill art teacher Sacha Troxler (pictured) will be one of the featured artists.

This year, the tour includes more than 50 local artists and four art centers. Guests may visit art studios and see work in all of its stages, while talking to artists about ideas, processes and materials. The self-guided tour is free to the public.

Troxler initially applied to the highly sought after show three years ago. After submitting her work for review, and allowing the jury to visit her studio, she is one of four new artists invited to participate this year.

“I am thrilled to have been selected for this tour,” said Troxler. “I have always believed that being a working artist makes me a better teacher.”

The tour takes place on Oct. 12-13, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. 

Studio tour maps may be picked up at the Bath House Cultural Center and at Creative Arts Center.
