Open Studios Tour


ARTS Obispo's Open Studios Art Tour (OSAT) is one of the largest Open Studios in the country, with about 200 artists participating annually by opening their studios for visitors to tour.  Art in a huge variety of media and styles is displayed and sold by artists directly in their homes & studios, and many artists have live demos and works in progress, to see the art being created and get a feel for the process from concept to completion.

Tour visitors look through our full-color catalog featuring images of participating artists' work, their contact information and maps to their studios. Printed catalogs will be available at various businesses throughout San Luis Obispo County beginning September 15, 2014.  Click here to find a catalog distributor location near you.  You may also view the catalog online or download a copy (see the Documents & Links box at the right). As one Open Studios visitor remarked, "The art means more when one talks directly to the artist."

ARTS Obispo's Open Studios Art Tour helps to support ARTS Obispo's community-based programs such as Arts in Education, Art in Public Places, and Art After Dark, supporting arts and culture in San Luis Obispo County.
