Astoria is home to a rich and diverse number of visual artists. Brilliantly illuminating their creative talent, the 11th annual Astoria Open Studios Tour opens the doors of professional and emerging artists’ workspaces for the general public, Saturday, July 24 and Sunday, July 25 from 11am to 5pm each day. Everyone, all ages, can enjoy this free public event, meeting the makers, and getting a close-up view of their techniques and media. Visitors from near and far travel by car, bicycle or on foot to get a unique glimpse into the lives of some of our most loved Astoria residents. Astoria is home to so many amazing and talented artists, you never know who you are going to meet or what you are going to find! This event is part of the programming of Astoria Visual Arts, a 501(c)3 nonprofit and is supported by AVA members and the City of Astoria.
