Safety Guidelines for our 2020 Tour

Safety Guidelines for 2020 Open Studios-Botetourt

Artist’s Workshops, Studios and Home Studios will be open on Saturday, October 24 from 10AM – 5PM and Sunday, October 25 from 11AM – 5PM.

We are able to still hold this event because we can do so safely by following all the recommendations. Open Studios-Botetourt is unique as it is a smaller event that distributes its visitors to nine locations throughout the county. Each studio is reached by a pleasant drive from a few minutes to 25 minutes.

  • We will be following the Governor’s Mask Mandate. Masks will be required to enter.
  • Some locations may be limiting the number of visitors inside to do as much social distancing as possible. We appreciate your patience as we anticipate this will be a short wait.
  • Studio surfaces and high-touch areas will be sanitized often.
  • Wash your hands. Hand sanitizer will be available at all locations.
  • Wear a coat and/or dress in layers to stay warm. Some art displays will be moved outdoors (weather permitting).
  • Doors and windows will be open to maximize air circulation inside the studios.
  • If you do not feel well, please stay home for everyone’s safety.

There is an option for a private tour by appointment on Thursday and Friday Oct. 22 and 23. Contact the artist directly using the information on the brochure or online at

We can’t wait to see you!
