Every year in the fall, the artists of Great Falls, Virginia hold an Open Studio weekend, inviting the public into their studios to learn about their art, their techniques, and why they are so dedicated to the creation of visual art. This year, more than 50 members of Great Falls Studios are participating in this event which will be held this year on 17-19 October from 10 AM to 5 PM each day. My studio (see images below) will be one of those open and I hope followers of my blog who live in the Washington, DC area will be able to drop by.
But there are 49 other artists as well and information about the tour and each of the participants can be found at the 2014 Great Falls Studio Tour website. Information is provided about each of the participants so you can design your own itinerary and see works of painters, potters, photographers, jewelers, sculptors, fiber artists, and other media depending on your interests. The site has a page with links to maps that can be downloaded. Or you can start at the Studio Tour Headquarters in the Great Falls Library and see actual samples of work from each of our participants, ask questions from our representative who will be there, and pick up a map that will guide you through the roads and byways of Great Falls to the studio locations. The library, normally closed on Sundays, has graciously agreed to be open on October 19th for this event.
