We’re inviting you to scenic Botetourt County, Virginia, home of many of the Valley’s leading artists. This October, fourteen of these artists will be offering their work while sharing their creativity in eleven unique artist’s studios. This free, self guided driving tour, of working artist’s studios and homes, is your chance to discover and collect finished works directly from the artists themselves. Plus you will see works in progress, possibly catching an impromptu demonstration of the tools and techniques used to create them. Enjoy the countryside’s fall foliage while you drive from location to location throughout the county. There are Open Studios – Botetourt signs along your way to help guide you in the right direction. Pickup a “passport card” at your first stop on the tour, fill it out, have it stamped at each location you visit, then drop it off at your last stop. You’ll then be entered into a drawing for a $150 gift certificate towards an art purchase from any single tour artist. Visit us online at openstudiosbotetourt.com for additional information including biographies of this year’s artists.
