October 12 & 13 and 19 & 20

The Orange County Arts Council, through a generous sponsorship from M&T Bank and C & S Wholesale Grocers, is organizing its Fifth Annual Open Studio Tour which will take place over two weekends and span the entire County. The Open Studio Tour is a free event, and provides the public with a self-guided tour of local visual art studios, venues and galleries. The Open Studio Tour is a glimpse into the diverse wealth of artists in the county.  Artists presenting include sculptures, potters, visual artists, metal smiths, jewelers, fabric artists, crafters, woodworkers, photographers and two studios which produce both Broadway sets and Broadway backdrops. This year’s tour will highlight 66 visual artists.

Booklets are being created by the Orange County Arts Council, highlighting each artist, their location, contact information and a visual of their artwork. Three thousand, five hundred booklets will be printed and distributed throughout the county in galleries, local lodging, businesses, eateries, art organizations, tourist information centers and on the Orange County Arts Council web site (www.ocartscouncil.org).

Visitors on the tour can expect to find both visual artists in galleries, art spaces, and studios up close and personal during their creative process. Artists are able to do so by offering explanations and demonstrations of their materials and art process. The Orange County Arts Council hopes this annual event will provide an opportunity for dialogue between artists and the general public, therefore bringing about a broader knowledge of the arts.

It is the Arts Council’s desire that the Open Studio Tour will open up the world of artists to everyone – from students to the seasoned collector to the first-time art buyer or observer, to the curious general public. The Arts Council believes that through education, visitors become loyal customers and supporters of art.
