Plans for the 2017 , Open Studios – Botetourt tour are now in development. In the meantime, this year’s artists are hard at work. Please like us on Facebook to see what everyone is up to this summer! https://www.facebook.com/osbotetourt/
Signs are going up and so is the temperature. In what will surely be our warmest and most beautiful tour yet, it begins this Saturday, Oct. 29, at 10AM and goes until 5PM. It will continue on Sunday at 11AM and again go until 5PM.
Be sure to marvel at all the clean studios. We artists are by nature, mostly a messy lot. Although we take great pride in having studios with everything in order, they are truly rare sights to behold. Prepare to be amazed. The artwork is great to see, too!
From whimsical sculpture to fine jewelry, with wood turning, paintings, etching and drawings between, there will be art to match the budget and taste of almost everyone.
