Several Dayton artists opened their galleries to visitors Saturday morning for this year's annual Dayton Art Loop Studio Tour.

Barbara Gail Sellar, owner of Dog Paw Pottery and one of the co-founders of the event, said the tour has been happening for 10 years or more.

Asked what prompted her to start the tour, she laughed and said she had too much pottery.

Gina was Gina Donnor, whose business, the Gallery on Main, featured the works of over 25 local artists during the tour this year.

Donnor said this year's was probably the busiest tour so far that she remembers.

Among artists on the tour was Sonja Caywood, who said she's been part of the art loop since the event started. She also said Saturday was a busy day for the tour.

She said people really do like to see where the artists live and work. Also participating in the tour was David McDougall, owner of the Painted Skull Studio, and the Tongue River Valley Community Center hosted several craft tables.

Besides a chance to see, and buy, artwork and crafts, those on the tour received a card that they could get punched at each studio they visited. The cards were entered in a drawing for a door prize at the end of the tour.
