Also for 2020: By Appointment Tours
October 22 & October 23

At this time, we still have every intention of holding Open Studios – Botetourt on October 24 & 25, 2020, because we can do so safely and with any social distancing requirements that may be necessary this fall. Please check back for updated information.

We’re inviting you to scenic Botetourt County, Virginia, home of many of the Valley’s leading artists. This October, a select group of artists will be offering their work while sharing their creativity in eleven unique artist’s studios.

This free, self guided driving tour, of working artist’s studios and homes, is your chance to discover and collect finished works directly from the artists themselves. Plus you will see works in progress, possibly catching an impromptu demonstration of the tools and techniques used to create them.

Enjoy the countryside’s fall foliage while you drive from location to location throughout the county. There are Open Studios – Botetourt signs along your way to help guide you in the right direction.

Pickup a “passport card” at your first stop on the tour, fill it out, have it stamped at each location you visit, then drop it off at your last stop. You’ll then be entered into a drawing for a $150 gift certificate towards an art purchase from any single tour artist.

  1. Good evening. I was looking on Mary Anne meadors website and noticed that you displayed her paintings. I was looking for some of her work and wondered if you are open to sell her paintings before the oend of October.

  2. Hi there! Heather Fay suggested your organization to us. This year my husband and I started a woodworking business out of our home. Our shop is housed in our barn. We are interested in becoming a stop on the tour. We live on Old Sessler Mill Rd in Troutville, we own the original 1860’s Sessler home. We are on Facebook, Instagram and have an Etsy shop. Our business name is Old Sessler Millworks. Our Etsy page is http://www.OldSesslerMillworks.etsy.com

    Thank you for considering us!! We look forward to hearing from you.
