The San Luis Obispo County Open Studios Art Tour, a program of ARTS Obispo, takes place over two weekends in October each year. Free to the public, fine artists and crafters open their studios to showcase their art and share their process. Visitors create their own self-guided tour using the printed and downloadable catalog or mobile-friendly map.
Fine artists/crafters who live or work in San Luis Obispo County, or within 20 miles of the SLO County line, may apply for the 2019 Open Studios Art Tour.Artists from outside SLO County looking to participate must share a studio in SLO County, with a SLO County artist.
2019 is a new year, with that we are looking to introduce a new tour. For the first time in Open Studios history, we are opening up the tour to non-members. While we would love to see our artist membership rise. We understand that some people are not ready to commit to being members. We would like to showcase as many Central Coast artists as possible. In addition to opening up the tour to non-members, this year we would like to include art businesses and collectives that support local artists.
The 2019 Open Studios Art Tour will take place Saturday and Sunday, October 12/13 & Saturday and Sunday, October 19/20, 10am to 5pm. Artists have the choice of being open one or both weekends.
