The first White Rock Lake Artists Studio Tour in 1992 was created by the artists David Hickman, Michael Obranovich, and Marty Ray.
The purpose of the tour was, and still is, to showcase local artists and their work to the public, the Bath House website states. This event also allows community members to see the spaces where the local art is created.
The studios used can be found in neighborhoods close to the White Rock Lake community.
Ray is still part of the White Rock Lake Artists Studio Tour today, the website shares, coordinating and leading the event.
Sponsors of the Studio Tour include Lakewood East Dallas Advocate, Creative Arts Center of Dallas, Times Ten Cellars, CityWork, and Friends of the Bath House Cultural Center.
