Cooter, Tonder and Friends Art Weekend

Each September since 1996 a group of full-time professional artists have hosted the Crossing Borders Studio Tour and Sale along the North Shore of Lake Superior, during the peak of the autumn leaf colors. In 1996 the concept was simple, pool our resources, print a map and open our doors to everyone.

The intent of Crossing Borders Studio Tour continues. Dick and Debbie Cooter, Michael Tonder and Jody Freij-Tonder, have participated every year and intend to keep up the tradition of good art, good hospitality and good conversations with Cooter, Tonder and Friends Art Weekend. We invite you to join us at our studios and homes near Two Harbors, Minnesota for three days of beautiful scenery and great art.
