Studio tour lends a peek into creative spaces
Washington County artists open up their studios Saturday and Sunday
If you have ever looked at a piece of art and wondered how it was made or how the artist came up with the idea, this is your weekend. Fifty Washington County artists will open their studios on Oct. 19 and 20, welcoming art lovers to see where and how the artists create.
Free and open to the public, the Washington County Artists Open Studios Tour is funded by a grant from the Cultural Coalition of Washington County and donations from local sponsors. Studios will be open both Saturday and Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
To design your self-guided tour, preview the artists work at washcoart.org and download a map to their locations. Printed catalogs are available in advance at Art on Broadway in Beaverton and Sequoia Gallery in Hillsboro, and during the tour at the studios and sponsoring businesses.
On Saturday, Art on Broadway will conduct a silent auction of artwork by some of its member artists.
Tour-goers can visit artists working in a variety of mediums, including ceramics, book arts, sculpture, jewelry, collage, colored pencil, charcoal, graphite, watercolor, pastels, fabric and fibers, wood, metal, glass and photography.
Participating local artists include Mandy Allen, Sierra
Lonepine Briano, Susan Curington, Les Dougherty, Patricia Grass, Marj Greenhut, Sue Hacker, Sharon Haywood-Hoff, Barbara Hertel, Amanda Houston, Helvi Smith and Lynne Taylor.
