Inside, Outside, All Around the Towns.

October 15 – 16, 11am – 5pm

This is our 9th year of the annual Ashland Open Studio Tour. In 2020, opening anything was deemed too hazardous. In 2021, we put together an event at Ashland ArtWorks where artists could show their studio work under tents, on the grounds, for one half a day. It was a temporary solution. Now, in 2022, after we dodged a few variants of the deadly virus, we will once again invite you into artists’ realms. Some will be inside, some outside, some both. Please honor each artist’s safety measures.

It is their workspace they are opening to the public, revealing sometimes surprising processes. It is a place they love to work. It can be solitary work for many months, and having visitors bring their interest and curiosity often brings stimulation and new ideas.

Coming through pandemic circumstances, many artists lost gallery representation after permanent closures. Direct studio sales on this day helps a lot while artists continue to seek new outlets. The Tour could also serve as a first studio visit from a new gallery owner.

The Open Studio Tour can also be a fun outing shared between friends on the 3rd weekend of October. Abiding by requests for COVID safety may include providing proof of vaccination.

There is no charge to take the Tour. Find Tour maps in AGA member galleries, and look for corresponding lettered signs.
