As a free community event, the goal of Arts in Bloom is to make art accessible to the entire region, and to strive to aid in the understanding and appreciation of the art that is being created in our own backyards. Through interaction with the artists, and their live demonstrations, our trail also endeavors to inform those in attendance as to the creative and technical processes by which art develops. We always encourage that you ask questions about why our artists use the techniques that they do and what inspires them.
As you visit the different studios and galleries, you will experience many different forms of art, much of which is for sale. When you find that special piece, don’t be shy about taking it home with you as a reminder of your adventure on the Art Trail. And keep in mind, our artists work all year long, and are happy to discuss personal commissions or purchasing at any time with you by appointment or during regular studio or gallery hours.
We hope the artists of Steuben County will inspire you, and that you enjoy your time on the Arts in Bloom Trail while exploring the back roads of Steuben County.
