Each “new to the Tour” applicants’ work and studio/gallery is subject to a mandatory jurying process and studio/gallery inspection. The jurying process is based on a number of criteria including the quality of the work, the professionalism of the presentation and studio/gallery space.

Applicants can apply to be a new member at their home studio or to be a guest of a current member of the tour. The tour strives for a balanced representation of media and an optimal number of members. There is no guarantee that all applications will be accepted.

The Bancroft Studio Tour exists to:
1. Promote appreciation of local art.
2. Educate the public as to artistic process, lifestyle and inspiration.
3. Promote sales of our work and profile its availability.
