Watkins Glen Art Trail plans third tour.   2007 Elmira Open Studio Tour.
When: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 13 and noon to 5 p.m. Oct. 14.2007  
When: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Oct. 7.
Where: Eight artists, one gallery and one store will exhibit their works in the Watkins Glen area.

Cost: Admission is free to all studios.
Information: visit www.eARTS.org.

Robert O'Neill, of Montour Falls, says that his art "goes in all directions."

"I do abstracts, portraits, landscapes and a little bit of sculpture," O'Neill says. For several months, O'Neill, McIntyre and Joseph Stevenson, another artist taking part in the art trail, have been getting together on Monday afternoons to paint together. They paint the same subject but, because of their different styles, end up with very different images.

"There's something stimulating about working alongside other artists," O'Neill says. "Your work goes in directions you wouldn't naturally take."

About the artists
From traditional oil paintings to avant-garde sculptures, visitors can discover a diverse selection of local artists who use a variety of mediums. Each artist will offer a different experience at his or her studio.

  Where: 24 artists will exhibit their works in 19 studios in the Elmira/Horseheads area.
Cost: Free admission to all studios.
