Arts Perspective magazine welcomes you to our 4th Annual Durango Open Studios tour and art sale October 13/14 and 20/21 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. We have 33 artists from Durango, Bayfield and Ignacio, Colorado inviting you into their studios to see their creative space. Our tour guidebook is designed for you to learn about artists, direct you to their studios and suggest options to help you view as many artist studios as possible over two weekends.
This year we have a new Studio Headquarters location featuring an on-going exhibit of all participating artists’ work at DurangoSpace, 1221 Main Avenue in Durango beginning October 10 – 31. Be sure and stop by and view the artists’ work and check out the scheduled artists demonstrations throughout the Studio Tour weekend!
Artists pay no commission to Durango Open Studios with proceeds from art sales going directly to the artists. So, get in your car, hop on your bike, saddle up your horse and take advantage of our “Studio 101: How to Plan Your Studio Tour Days” and enjoy our spectacular mountains while viewing and buying artwork. Watch for the “artist @ work” signs and download the map to guide your way.
