We are very excited about the tremendous growth of this Open Studios Tour. We started with our first Art Tour in December of 2013, with five locations and nine artists. June’s 2016 tour featured 75 amazing artists at 41 locations, plus some live music, poetry, and performances that complimented the Tour.
The Open Studios Art Tour provides an intimate view into the artist’s life and studio; to be able to see where and how ideas are conceived and developed. When visiting an artist’s studio, the creative process becomes apparent and is unique to each artist. It provides a personal, individualized experience, unlike the setting of a typical gallery show. This is what makes our event so special. We don’t charge any admission fees, and welcome all of our neighbors to experience the tour.

With over 70 artiists and 33 locations, the action was hot and heavy at the 2019 Tour. The addition of members from the Pasadena Society of Artists was a big plus as they brought in more people from their circle. Many artists made big sales and collectors were buying.
It was big success!
