The application for the Portland Open Studios (PDXOS) 2016 Tour is open.

Apply now

Final deadline is 11pm, March 15th, 2016.

Please contact Charlotte Cunningham, Application Manager via if you have any questions or concerns, The application will look fairly familiar to those of you who have applied previously, but there is one significant difference this year – in addition to 3 artwork images we are requesting 1 “at work” image.  The “at work” image should show you either in the process of making work or just in your studio.  These images will be for use in our promotional efforts and will not be scored by jurors.

A few things to know:

  • A studio is anywhere you make artwork that you are willing (and permitted to) open to the public – the studio can be separate from your residence or it can be your living room, basement, attic, garage, et cetra.
  • At the time you apply you must know where you will be making art in October.
  • During the tour you will need to discuss and demonstrate how you make your artwork. We are happy to assist artists in preparing their educational component.

In your application you will submit 3 artwork images and 1 “at work” image showing either you in the process of making your work or you in your studio.
