Grand Valley Open Studios Tour 2019

You are invited – October 11, 12 & 13

For three special days this autumn, twenty five Grand Valley fine artists are extending an exclusive invitation to the public. They are opening the doors of their private studios. From the large purpose-built studio, to the small adaptive work-space, each artist studio is a unique world.

With a variety of tools, lighting, and work space, every studio allows artistic ideas and inspiration to take life. Each studio is organized to accommodate individual artists’ own special processes and techniques.  The studio is where the artist spends hours, months or even years working to create art that only takes seconds to view!

Map in hand – or phone in hand – you are an explorer. Discover hidden nooks and amazing views of the Grand Valley. Visit places you didn’t dream existed, enter private sanctuaries of artistic creativity, impressive home galleries, and witness in-progress demonstrations. Expand your knowledge and appreciation of our valley’s amazingly talented and generous art community.

While daily you can see finished artwork gracing the walls of Grand Valley galleries, businesses and the Western Colorado Center for the Arts, this behind-the-scenes opportunity only happens once – the weekend  of October 11, 12 & 13, 2019. Don’t miss it.
