Celebrating Art – Visit 31 Studios over Labor Day Weekend
The 14th annual Art Studio Views tour takes place on Saturday, September 4th and Sunday, September 5th, over Labor Day weekend, from 11am-5pm each day at 31-artists’ studios in the mid-Hudson Valley region. No need to call ahead – this two-day self-guided event is free and open to the public of all ages.
“This Labor Day weekend we’re all celebrating more freedom. Art Studio Views will be a very positive experience for our visitors & artists alike,” said ASV director and gallery-owner Joanna Hess. “I especially encourage families to enjoy this adventure. Visiting an artist’s studio is an opportunity to personally interact with the artists and learn about their processes & particular medium.”
Art Studio Views 2021 promotes the talents of artists in Germantown, Hyde Park, Red Hook, Rhinebeck, and Tivoli. “Travel the beautiful roads of Dutchess & Columbia Counties with studios as your destination. This is all about discovery and meeting new people. The artists would love to show you their work and their process, and have artwork available to purchase.”
added Hess. “Follow our bright yellow Art Studio Views signs along the route to find these private studios.”
