“Nothing that you plan is going to work out. Everything is going to be totally different than the way you expected. And things will constantly challenge you. Wherever you look the world is not as solid it seems to be.” — Spiritual teacher and author Eckhart Tolle.
For 16 years, art lovers and the culturally curious of the South Coast towns of Westport and Dartmouth, Massachusetts, and Tiverton and LittleCompton, Rhode Island, have made their annual pilgrimage visit to the studios of some of the best artists, who live, work and actively exhibit in these four beautiful New England bordering coastal towns.
Many of these trekkers return year after year to the annual Open Studio Tour sponsored by the South Coast Artists (SCA), a non-profit arts organization founded in 2008. South Coast Artists was founded by artists for artists, to encourage and foster artistic growth and recognition for its now, 100 plus artist members.
A wonderful benefit of the organization is the access it gives the public to their Massachusetts and Rhode Island artist members. But more about this wonderful organization a bit later.
