With the cold winds of winter a fleeting memory and the summer sun looming, an art jaunt along I-25 seems like a weekend well spent. Start in the hills of Santa Fe, where the Eldorado Studio Tour opens Friday night with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. at La Tienda Center (7 Caliente Road). Mingle with artists, snack on hors d’oeuvres and groove to the tunes of David Wescott Yard and Doug Frantz.
But that’s just the warm-up act. Things really kick off Saturday morning as 69 Eldorado-area studios featuring more than 100 artists open their doors. Works in just about every medium abound, and the show runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.
