APPLICATIONS DUE: May 31st
Join us this year in Celebrating our 10th Anniversary! To date, the tour has shown over 170 different artists and has played an important role in helping to develop our vibrant art community! It uncovers and connects the individual artists living and working in Clark County and artists to patrons/art lovers all over the region.
Again, last year’s tour had record-breaking sales! The community was eager to reconnect with local artists, and there is no better way to do that than in the studios where the creative process happens. We are gearing up for this year’s tour to be even bigger.
NEW THIS YEAR!
All participating artists will have access to five Professional Development workshops through our partnership with the PDXOS Artist Academy. We are thankful to our friends across the river for sharing this opportunity.
In addition, emerging artists ages 20-30 are encouraged to apply for the CHRISTINE RICE MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP, in remembrance of open studio artist Christine Rice, created to support young artists’ career paths. Included with their participation in open studios, they will receive a 500-1000 stipend plus mentorship from a seasoned Open Studios Artist, with the option to be hosted in another artist’s studio. Thank you to Christine’s family, that made this scholarship possible.
The program continues to grow and prosper, and we are thankful for all the support that enables us to keep the program going strong and helps artists continue to create. A special thank you to the City of Vancouver’s Tax Grant program for additional funding, which will provide OPB advertising through radio and television sponsorships in the weeks leading up to the event!
