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 openstudiosbotetourt.com/artists.

We can’t wait to see you!
