For 34 years artists in the historic Monches area of scenic southeastern Wisconsin have been opening their doors to the public the first weekend in December to share their studios and their artwork. A day trip to the Holy Hill area during this time has become a holiday tradition for many, with visitors coming from throughout the midwest.
The 2017 tour will include an artglass studio, a sculptor, two jewelry studios, a metal artist, an art cooperative, two restaurants hosting visiting artists, a church craft sale and a farm offering fresh trees, handmade wreaths & seasonal greens as well as a festive shop filled with Christmas goods and visiting artists.
