We are thrilled to announce the return of "Open Studios."
Deadline to apply: May 16, 2017

Event Dates:
Studio Locations SOUTH of the Rogue River: September 23 & 24, 2017
Studio Locations NORTH of the Rogue River: September 30 & October 1 2017
10am - 4pm both days

(Exemptions to participating on both Saturday and Sunday are available for religious reasons.)

Open Studios returns for a second year. By popular request we have expanded Open Studios to two weekends, dividing studios by their location to the Rogue River.

You will be able to develop a loyal following and have an opportunity to connect to your local audience, make sales, and make friends! If you are an emerging artist it is a way to get a jump start in interacting with your community. If you are an established artist it is a way to further your interaction and attract new people who like art.

This is not an art fair, festival, or exhibition. This is a chance to invite the public into your studio and to show them your creative process and tell them why you do what you do!

The Nitty-Gritty
We developed this event to benefit the participating artists and our community, not as a museum fundraiser. The museum has graciously agreed to help sponsor the event and we aim to create some funds to cover the costs. Funds are needed for such purposes as the Artist Guide, map, and publicity. We keep the costs to the artist as low as possible. If you look at other cities open studios participation fees, you will see that ours are very low.

An Open Studios event is popular because it is a chance for the general public to see behind the scenes of an artist's work and process. This is not an event for retail spaces, galleries, etc. If you have a business with regular open-to-the-public hours, that is awesome, but this is not your event. We want artists in their spaces. We do understand that some artist studio spaces may not be suitable for the general public (for example, not-so enthusiastic roommates, a driveway that guarantees that everyone falls off a cliff, your studio is so remote that no one can reach it without 4-wheel drive). If you need to be hosted then apply, explain your situation, and if you are accepted we will work with you to match you up with another participating artist.

Art lovers and buyers are everywhere!
