County Studio Tour creates a two-day event to showcase, highlight and share these artists with art connoisseurs, collectors, and curious neighbors. It is a unique experience to visit the studios of artists that you have admired or just encountered by browsing the 59 studios and 149 artists included in this catalogue. The Studio Tour is a casual way to introduce yourself to the arts and become immersed in the creative talent scattered throughout Chester County.
Studios are advised of CDC-recommended guidelines for both patrons and artists.

Since our last County Studio Tour in September, we have gone back into seclusion. We have been in our studios developing our ideas, nurturing our intuition, and perfecting our skills. Once again, we will emerge this May to share our creative environment and new work.
Our studios vary wildly in size, clutter, layout, and location. Some are sheds or separate buildings while some are tiny rooms or perhaps a corner of a room. These are the places where art is born and our minds roam free. As we find our path, our materials and tools of the trade evolve around us. You will see reference books and bits of inspirational material that some might call junk. There are of course unfinished works or some that were never meant to be finished.
It is not surprising that some of our studios are more chaotic than others, but all are reflections of our art. Some studios are tidy and almost clinically clean where white palettes abound. Other studios are filled to the brim where artwork may literally get spilled out onto the floor. One thing all artists have in common is collective inspiration.
We hope you enjoy the tour as much as we do.
It's All About The Journey
Here are three ways get started.
With over 600 signs scattered around the county, it's hard to miss. Follow the arrows to the studio and grab a catalogue and start your journey.
Not sure where to start. Click the "Find 5" logo and allow location sharing, we'll find the closest studios and even recommend a place to eat.
Add the studios that you want to visit to your itinerary. Once you have selected your studios click "Map It" and let Google maps prepare your directions.
It's easy and it starts at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday.
Buying a piece of art from a local artist does so much, not just for the artist, but for the community. It nurtures and gives value to the creativity in that community.
Chester County Studio Tour has invited the artists to create only one County Collector for $75. Whether this is your first time buying original art or you are a seasoned collector, there is now something for everyone.
Are You an Artist Interested in Participating?
There are three counties to participate in.
We are excited that Citadel Credit Union has partnered with us in supporting our mission of promoting local and regional artists. Artists contribute to the economic and cultural vitality of the area by presenting original artwork and sharing their studios with the public.
