The 7th annual Artist’s Open Studio Tour in Botetourt County is coming on Saturday, October 28 from 10am to 5pm and on Sunday, October 29 from 11am to 5pm.

Lois Bisese, Ed Bordett, Nancy Dahlstrom, Vera Dickerson, Bill Divers, Brett LaGue, Judy Lochbrunner, David Jermann, Dan Jones, Willie Simmons, Julia Wesson and Mark Woodie.
Some of the artists will give demonstrations during the weekend to explain the materials, methods and processes they use. This year’s tour also includes a special project for many art students in Lord Botetourt and James River High Schools. The art teachers at the Botetourt High Schools have chosen their best students to make a painting of a favorite subject, and these works will be displayed in the studios during the Open Studio Tour.
Visitors can pick one a “Studio Passport” at any studio and fill in their contact information for a chance at receiving a $150 gift certificate towards the purchase of an art work of their choice. Visit one or all of the studios and enjoy a weekend exploring beautiful Botetourt County in the splendid colors of the season.
