2019 FMVA Studio Crawl Preview

August 22, 2019 - October 6, 2019

Fargo Moorhead Visual Artists (FMVA) is a group of some of the region’s most prominent professional and emerging artists. Each year, FMVA presents the Studio Crawl, a popular, free event that gives the community access to professional artist studios. The Studio Crawl is an opportunity for people to meet artists, see demonstrations, and purchase their work. As a collaboration between Plains Art Museum and FMVA, the Museum is proud to host this year’s preview exhibition, containing artwork from participating artists displayed the month prior to the Studio Crawl weekend. This year’s Studio Crawl will take place on Saturday and Sunday, October 5-6, and will feature over 75 artists at 40 studios. Find more information about FMVA at fmva.org.
