Forty artists throughout the area will open their private art studios to the public next month for the third annual Washington County Artists Open Studio Tour.

The free two-day, self-guided tour is on Oct. 20 and 21, but the Washington County Museum is offering impatient art fans a sneak peak this month.

The preview, which offers museum goers a chance to meet local artists and preview their artwork, runs from Sept. 8 to 29 at the Washington County Museum. The exhibit will kick off with an artist reception, held from 3 to 6 p.m. Sept. 8.

Artists will present a variety of mediums from oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings to ceramic, encaustic, fiber & fabric, glass, jewelry, metal works, photography and sculpture.

The Washington County Open Studios Tour is a project by the Washington County Art Alliance and was made possible this year by a grant from the Oregon Cultural Trust and Cultural Coalition.

The Sneak Preview Exhibit & Sale is open Monday through Saturday, Sept. 8 to 29; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Washington County Museum, 17677 N.W. Springville Road.
