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.
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.
On behalf of the Montgomery County Commerce Department and our partners at the Valley Forge Tourism and Convention Board (VFTCB), thank you for making the Montgomery County Studio Tour part of your ArtsMontco experience. The artisans, performers, dreamers, and doers of our vibrant arts and culture scene in Montco add to the unique flavor of the 62 municipalities that make up our incredible county. The vibrancy of the arts is an important part of what makes Montgomery County, Pennsylvania the place to live, work, learn, and invest.
We’re proud to champion the arts, along with our partners from VFTCB, because we know that arts and cultural experiences enrich the lives our residents and entice visitors to come back to explore our county and its communities. Over the past several years, working together, we’ve not only sought to highlight the arts, but also the incredible and indelible small businesses you’ll find in our communities through the Make It Main Street initiative. So as you’re out exploring the great studio locations, don’t pass up the opportunity to find a great meal or unique shopping opportunity along the many Main Streets of Montgomery County.
Thank you again for supporting the arts in Montgomery County; I hope your experience will be enlightening and inspiring as you take in all that our county and its communities have to offer. And thank you to all the artisans who call Montgomery County home as well; your contributions to your craft and to your communities make each place more than just a name on a map – it adds to the mosaic of the places people and businesses call home.
Dave Zellers, Director of Commerce, Montgomery County
We are very excited to host our fifth annual Montgomery County Studio Tour on September 24th and 25th. The past two years have been, let’s say, interesting. Yet we made our way through it all while successfully and safely keeping our studios open and sharing our art with the community last year. This year has had its own hurdles that we must overcome, but we can move about freely and exchange a smile with all 30 artists on this year’s tour.
Many new artists have joined us this year, proving once again that creativity continues to grow and blossom this September in Montgomery County. Everyone is encouraged to venture throughout the county to share in our creative passion.
These past two years prove that determination endures. We have nurtured our souls, grown creatively and honed our talents. Now that this celebrated weekend in September is at hand, we will be tidying our studios and showcasing new art to present to the public. We look forward to seeing you, and invite you to bring home some of this fresh, local art to enjoy.
Art is a fixture in our community. Now you have the opportunity to support the creative forces behind this art. Meet this year’s artists and ask them questions about their work and what motivates them. May that conversation inspire you to bring a piece of their story into your house and to create a special place on a wall in your home.
Our studios house us as we house our art.
