Open Studio Tour Information

for Visitors & Patrons

 

Welcome!

SCA features two open studio tour weekends, typically the third weekend in July & August and includes up to 75 exhibiting artists. This year’s event is scheduled for July 17-18 and August 21-22.

This is your chance to visit the studios of some of the best artists living, working and exhibiting in the four beautiful coastal towns of Tiverton, Little Compton, Westport and Dartmouth. Whether this is your first visit, or you’re a seasoned traveler to the South Coast, you’re sure to be impressed by the amazing quality and incredible range of creative work being produced in these scenic communities.

The self-guided tour will take you across small highways and rural byways of stunning natural beauty. Along the way you’ll discover the work of welcoming artists working in such diverse mediums as oils, acrylics, watercolors, photography, sculpture, basketry, fiber arts, ceramics, glass, wood, metal, jewelry, paper and mixed media. All you have to do is follow the map in the brochure and look for the blue and white Open Studio signs marking each studio or gallery. And, if you can’t make it to every gallery on the tour, remember that each artist can be reached through SCA’s Artist Member Directory on the website and plans can be made with individual artists for a visit some other time.

Both Open Studio Tour weekends are free, open to the public, and require absolutely no registration. The 2021 SCA Open Studio Tour Brochure is now available to download! You can also download our app for Apple devices here and Android devices here to plan your tour ahead of time. We hope you can join us. Thank you!
