Open Studios artists to showcase their collective talent

Art may be a solitary endeavor, but 20 artists in Washington County, N.Y., believe promoting and selling it doesn’t have to be.

On July 13-16, Open Studios of Washington County makes its biennial return to the region. The event launched in 2007 and has brought thousands of visitors to local studios while generating significant revenue for participating artists. It has also raised the visibility of the artists in the communities in which they live.

“Open Studios is a great opportunity for people to discover the extraordinary talent of our regional artists,” said Sue Sanderson, organizer, Open Studios of Washington County. “This year we have a record 20 artists. Many are nationally and internationally acclaimed. Those who aren’t are making their mark. And all support each other.”
