See artists at work
'Watch artists at work' is the perpetual pitch for the Portland Open Studios weekend, now in its 8th year. 95 artists in the Portland area are participating this year, with the Westside studios open on October 14th and 15th, and the Eastside studios open to visitors on Saturday, October 21st, and Sunday, October 22nd; the hours are 10 am till 5 pm each of these days.
As before, the admission tickets for two are bound into a custom calendar and guide, which includes directions and maps to the participating studios; they are good all four dates. These 'tour guides' are available for $15 at New Seasons Market, and other locations listed on the Internet website: www.portlandopenstudios.com. When the Open Studios events have ended, the calendars will continue to be colorfully useful, since they offer monthly calendar pages through the end of 2007.
