Tour of the Arts has a long history
October 17, 2019
SEELEY LAKE – "When it first started, I thought it would be just a little Seeley Lake and Condon thing," Chris Jewett said about Alpine Artisans' Tour of the Arts, which took place Oct. 12-13. "I never thought it would grow as big as it has. Every year more and more people come. It's an exciting thing."
Jewett said the idea of having a fundraiser that consisted of visiting artist Open Houses was conceived 16 years ago by then AAI president Joyce Bissell. Bissell promptly delegated Jewett to take charge of organizing the event. Jewett commented, "That woman was a great delegator."
