OPEN STUDIOS OF WASHINGTON COUNTY, NEW YORK
Washington County is the jewel of upstate New York. In the tradition of Tuscany, known for its rolling hills, pastoral settings and beautiful family farms, our county provides an ideal setting for artists and collectors alike to come together and celebrate this exceptional natural setting. Already home to Salem Artworks, the Battenkill Chorale, Hubbard Hall and Music from Salem, Washington County is a vibrant community inspiring all forms of creativity from music and theater to literature and craft. The biennial Open Studios Tour provides the visual arts cornerstone for this cultural community and an opportunity for an exceptional cultural tourism event.
Open Studios of Washington County develops and promotes its fine arts community with the key objectives of increasing art revenues in the county, encouraging appreciation of the visual arts and enhancing the image and reputation of Washington County beyond its borders. We have hosted four successful tour events; our fifth tour will take place on July 18-19, 2015.
Open Studio Tours bring visitors to Washington County for the weekend to travel the county and visit a juried selection of professional artists in their studios. Visitors drive from studio to studio through the beautiful landscapes. Artists meet and talk with the guests about their work. Guests are able to peek behind the curtain of the studio as well as purchase works.
