I last took part in Open Studios 10 years ago. I loved it but the amount of work both before and after is incredible. As a full-time artist that also teaches and shows in 8 different galleries time is very important to me. So it was with much consideration and convincing of my amazing family …

About

The Washington County Open Studios tour is a project of the Washington County Art Alliance, a volunteer based organization dedicated to enhancing community vitality through art.

The first Washington County Open Studios tour was dreamed up six years ago in the fall of 2010. Seventeen artists gathered in a living room, planned and took the plunge, holding their inaugural event just three short months later. What they lacked in time they made up by enthusiasm and commitment to their dream of connecting local artists with their community.

Since then, the number of participating artists has tripled, and the visitors to their studios is over 2000 on the tour weekend. Local galleries have been added to the venue, and a sneak preview exhibit is held prior to the actual tour. The range of media found in the tour–from the traditional to contemporary–attracts all walks of life and makes a fine showcase of our neighborhood talent.

The Washington County Art Alliance is proud make their Open Studios tour available to everyone. There is no charge to visit the tour, artist entrance fees are kept low, and many studios are wheelchair accessible. This is made possible by generous sponsors from local businesses, grants from the Cultural Commission of Washington County, and a lot of hard work and dedication of time by our artists. We are honored by their commitment to keep visual arts strong in our community.

artsmonth_logo_4cOpen Studios is proud to be part of Hillsboro Arts Month, an initiative of the Hillsboro Arts & Culture Council designed to highlight the arts and culture community of the City of Hillsboro. October 2016 featured over 50 arts and cultural events and classes in the Hillsboro community including music, dance, and theater performances; visual art exhibits and artists studio tours; literary readings, lectures, and workshops; and film screenings.
