What is Open Studios?
This annual event features a multitude of classic and contemporary art for every taste and hosts sculptors, printmakers, photographers, painters, jewelers, illustrators, woodworkers, designers and much more! Get ready for the 25th Annual Open Studios Tour of Nevada County West, proudly presented by The Center for the Arts! With 45+ artists on the tour and only four days to visit, we’ve made it easy for you to choose! A piece from each studio on the tour is on display in The Granucci Gallery so that you can take note of the studio numbers of your favorites and then you’re set for your self-selected art tour!

This tour is a wonderful opportunity to meet the artists, view new pieces and works in process, watch live demonstrations, learn about their processes from conception to completion, and buy original art in a wide range of mediums and methods! Beyond an art sale, Open Studios is a chance to experience first-hand how, where, and why art is created.

  • We realize that these are difficult times and everyone’s health and safety is of the utmost importance. With that in mind, artists who have their studios open for the tour will be following all currently mandated health and safety guidelines at the time of the tour. In addition, some artists have decided to only have their studios open by appointment only, and others will only be accessible through virtual platforms.
