Northside Open Studios Tour
April 23 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PMFree
Corvallis, Ore. – Six local Corvallis artists will open up their home studios and invite the community to the 1st Annual Northside Open Studio Tour (NOST) on Sunday, April 23rd, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This free, open studios tour will feature more than 20 local artists to celebrate spring and community connection through art.
“Art has always been a catalyst for conversation and a way to cultivate connection”, said organizer and ceramicist Avie Meadows. Organized entirely by artists, the Open Studios Tour is modeled after the South Town Art Walk which has showcased local art in South Corvallis since 2011. Similarly, the 1st Annual NOST event is a grassroots effort encouraging visitors to explore home studios by foot, bike or carpool. North Corvallis artists will be sharing and selling their locally created works and inviting conversations about their creative practice and spaces.
“We are excited to welcome Spring by sharing art with this amazing Corvallis community,” said local multimedia artist and jewelry maker Pam Pniak Thompson.
The event is free to all and all proceeds go to living local artists. A map of open studios along with artists profiles and examples of their work are available at www.NOST-art.com.
