Falling for Art is the dream of Joseph and Kathleen Pelka. Before moving to Fort Wayne, Joe and Kathy lived in Ojai, CA, where Joe was honored to be a part of the Ojai Studio Artists Tour. It was an event that drew patrons not only from Ojai, but from Los Angeles and areas well beyond. The art was outstanding in quality, and the artists really connected to the patrons. The OSA developed a well-deserved reputation as one of the premier studio tours in the country.
When Joe and Kathy moved to Fort Wayne, they dreamed of creating a tour very similar to the OSA in the Fort. 2020 was the inaugural event. The tour is a "must attend" art event for Fort Wayne and areas well beyond.
Falling for Art is more than a self-guided tour. It is an art experience. The Artists will be opening their studios for the public to have and inside look at how their art is made. Patrons can have conversations with the Artists about their inspiration and art, see works in progress, demonstrations, and purchase a work of art that they will cherish for years to come.
