Advertise with Us - Support Arts in your Community

Artwork by Jeni Lee

Every year, more than 100 artists across the Portland metro area open their studio doors in October and provide visitors with an engaging and personal art experience that includes demos and insight into the creative process.

Our Tour Guide is a beautiful keepsake of artist images and contact details. This year we include a directory of artists that teach classes and workshops to the public year-round. Local businesses and services can take advantage of full color advertising options to reach our audience and support our artists.

The Tour Guide Features Your Local Community!

Support Local Artists in YOUR Community.

Our Tour Guide provides a low cost, full color advertising opportunity to reach art lovers, artists, gallery owners, art collectors and visitors to the Portland area. We like to refer our patrons and artists to your services or retail locations.

Include coupons or discounts as part of your ad!

Surveys show that during the Event Weekends more than 60% of our Tour Patrons stop for a meal, drink or to shop.
