Sunday, October 25 – 11am-5pm

At this time, we still have every intention of holding Open Studios – Botetourt on October 24 & 25 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. Congrats on your upcoming 10th Anniversary. Last year, your group held a “kick-off” at Blue Ridge Vineyard. Do you know if your group would be planning the same this year? We’ve been adding new fall events to our 2020 calendar & don’t want to leave anyone out.

  2. Miranda,
    Sorry for being ages late replying. I completely missed your message. Mostly what we get after the event is a lot of spam messages and yours ended up in the middle of a batch of those.
    Everything is definitely up in the air at this point so we are not scheduling anything additional right now. Best wishes for getting a good crowd of folks out your way once summer hits (when everyone can hang out out of doors and watch the bears walk by! Thank you for checking with us!
