Orange County Artist Guild Announces 25th Annual Open Studio Tour

Now in its 25th year, the 2019 open studio tour takes place November 2nd and 3rd, 9th and 10th; Saturdays from 10 am to 5 pm, Sundays from 12 noon to 5 pm. Free and open to the public.

Each year during the first two weekends in November, the potters, glass blowers, sculptors, jewelers, fiber artists and painters of the Orange County Artist’s Guild open their studios to the public. This is your chance to view a working artist studio, ask questions, and shop for beautiful, one of a kind art. Now in its 25th year, the studio tour features over 90 local artists, covering nearly every artistic discipline and style.

With so many artists and only two weekends to explore, you will need a plan to see everything on your list. To plan your trip, pick up a tour brochure at arts organizations across the triangle, or download a copy from the website. This year, smart phone users can browse artists on the Orange County Artists Guild mobile website. Visit to get started. Browse artists and plan your tour with turn-by-turn directions to studios directly from the website!

Churton Street, Hillsborough) and Saturday, October 26, from 6 pm to 9 pm at FRANK Community Gallery (University Place 201 S. Estes Drive).
