Portland Open Studios is a juried studio tour of 100+ artists in the Portland Metro Area, providing a unique opportunity for artists to open their studios to the public.  Now in our 24th year, Portland Open Studios is a premier and anticipated annual arts event which attracts visitors from the community and beyond.  The Tour is a FREE event for visitors.  Attendees may print Maps from our website, View the tour guide online, or use our website on a mobile device.  Participants engage the community by demonstrating their methods and showing their work.  This event will be  held during the days of October 8, 9, 15, and 16 2022.  A $25 application fee is required for all applicants, and a $250 participation fee is due upon acceptance

Every February 1 we launch our yearly application to apply to become a Portland Open Studios Artist. In March our talented group of Jurors rate and score our applications and our top rated applicants are invited to participate.  This year we juried in 120 artists for our October tour and general membership.
