Clark County Open Studios Tour

Save the date for Clark County’s 3rd Annual Open Studio Tour!

50 artists throughout the county will open their studios to the public Saturday, November 14 and Sunday, November 15, from 10am to 5pm. Open Studios is a free self-guided tour where local artists share how, why and where their art is created. This is a unique opportunity to visit artists and artisans, get inspired and shop local.

It’ so exciting to be included this year, and though we admit this old milking barn is still under-going it’s transition to a weaving studio, there will be a warm fire crackling in the wood stove, artisanal teas, hot cider and great live music for all comers.  Join us in Hockinson!

Get all the details to take the tour and check out this year’s artists at:

 European Artistry Nurtured in Utah

With family roots in Europe, these local artists pursue art forms that were not only part of their youth but also represent significant aspects of their cultural inheritance. They continue to create this traditional artistry both as a statement of who they are and where they came from and as an expression of personal creativity.
