The South Kona Artists Collective — SOKO — holds its fourth annual Artists Studio Tour Feb. 24-25.
Twenty-one artists will share their work at a dozen locations from Holualoa to Honaunau during the two-day event. Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.
SOKO is a collective of dedicated professional artists seeking to share the varied ways they create. They are painters, potters, sculptors, photographers, jewelers, quilters, weavers, mosaic, assemblage, metal and wood artists. Living in this lush and wild, sometimes harsh, yet always inspiring environment that is the Big Island, they have come together to create opportunities for fine artists to share their vision and expand their audience.
SOKO hosts the yearly tour on the last weekend of February, in addition to group exhibitions, and other events.
Artists will be offering original work, framed giclees, matted art prints, books, pottery, quilts and cards for sale. Brochures will be brochures available with maps at local venues, studios, hotel concierges, and eateries and online at www.sokoartists.com.
