The 2017 Open Studio Tour
One of the largest open studio events in the Carolinas, this free, self-guided tour showcases the fine art and craft studios throughout Henderson County. For two days more than 50 artists in 30+ studios welcome art enthusiasts to their workplaces with plenty of new artwork to view and purchase. Why not start your collection this year? In addition to the the Open Studio Tour, Henderson County artists stage a Preview Party on Thursday, September 21 as part of the free Rhythm and Brews outdoor music series, where guests can view all the artists' work and an art raffle raises thousands of dollars for the local Backpack Program.
