Local artists open studios to public

Free two-day event offers tour of 50 studios in county


The public is invited to Washington County Artists Open Studios, a free tour of 50 artists’ studios.

Art lovers can see art in the making in Aloha, Beaverton, Cornelius, Forest Grove, Hillsboro, Tigard, Sherwood and Gaston.

Two galleries on the tour are Art on Broadway, 12570 S.W. Broadway St., in downtown Beaverton and Sequoia Gallery, 136 S.E. Third Ave., in Hillsboro.

Galleries and all artist studios are open Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Tour maps, artist and gallery lists are available at washcoart.org.

Beaverton artists in this year’s show include Manuela Kalestiantz, who works in wax encaustic; Roberta Babcock, clay sculptor; Shelley Lebel, mosaics; Terry Grant, fiber art; and painter Kimberlee Weisker. This event encourages participants to meet and visit with artists as they experience art as it takes shape.

This tour is made possible by a grant from the Cultural Coalition of Washington County and generous donations from other local sponsors.
