A hybrid approach — with COVID safety in mind
The Clark County Open Studios Tour is back on the calendar for this November 6–7. The tour will return after a year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This fall will mark the eighth year of the free, self-guided tour of local artists’ studios.
“What’s new is we’ll have multiple ways to explore our amazing community of artists.” says Jennifer Williams, artist and program director. “The tour will include a hybrid of experiences including video demos and live studio sharing, online shopping opportunities, and viewing by appointment for visitors who may be at greater risk for COVID-19. And, of course, traditional tour visitors can look forward to the first weekend of November as always — but with new COVID protocols at each studio.”
Due to ever changing circumstances, rather than having a printed guidebook, tour information will only be available online to allow for real-time updates. In the days prior to the tour, the latest on COVID safety details will be added.
“Our new hybrid approach,” Williams explains, “will allow us to move forward with tour plans that are flexible while providing an inclusive event with opportunities for all visitors and artists to engage safely.”
Clark County artists encouraged to apply
Open Studios is a juried art event, offering a unique opportunity for artists to gain further recognition, open their studio doors to the public, and to show and sell their work. Artstra is asking interested Clark County artists and artisans to begin applying online for this fall’s event. The application deadline is June 1, 2021. View details and application instructions.
