An array of artists brought their crafts to locations across Grand Junction Saturday, hoping to gain some recognition and make some sales.

The local artists were showcasing their talents at the 3rd Annual Fall Open Studios Tour and say the old saying "starving artist" is really applicable today.

Rhiannon Glover is a recent Fine Arts graduate from Mesa State. "It's hard. I am a bartender right now but I also still have a studio at my house and I'm still producing work, but it's definitely not easy," she says.

Linda Brotman-Evans, founder and director of Art Space and Open studios, started the event to help local artists promote their work and keep art and the artists alive in Grand Junction.
