Art Studio Views, September 1-2, 2018

Have you seen gold and black signs popping up around northern Dutchess County recently? They have nothing to do with politics and everything to do with the 11th annual Art Studio Views.

This weekend, September 1 and 2, follow those signs to 30 artist studios throughout the mid-Hudson Valley during this annual self-guided tour. From 11am-5pm, studio doors will open from Germantown to Hyde Park, Red Hook, Rhinebeck, and Tivoli, where artists will be available to discuss their work. There will also be demonstrations throughout the day. 

This is a unique opportunity to meet and engage with the diverse and talented artists working in their personal studio spaces ... This experience creates a special relationship between viewer and art, bringing the works alive.
— Joanna Hess, ASV Tour Director
