Over the past two years, over 50 artists and 20 studios have been part of the tour offering a variety of ways for participants to see and collect art. Not an art aficionado? Not a problem. The Montgomery County Studio Tour is not an exclusive club. Just come out and enjoy a weekend of open studios. Aspiring art collector? Plan your weekend and get out early to ensure you have art on your walls by Monday.
Montgomery County Studio Tour makes art affordable for everyone and shows that art can be everywhere.
