MARGARETVILLE — The weekend of July 30 & 31 will offer an exciting opportunity to residents and tourists visiting Delaware County when 32 local artists and galleries will open their doors to the public, extending a unique invitation to guests.
Meet the painters, sculptors, printmakers, photographers and mixed-media artists where they make, create and display their art. Studios and galleries will be open in Andes, Arkville, Denver, Fleischmanns, Halcottsville, Margaretville and Roxbury. For a complete map and more information about the artists, visit AMROpenStudios .org.
Launched in 2012, the Open Studios Tour has become a major cultural attraction in the Central Catskills Region. The pandemic canceled the tour in 2020, and in 2021 AMR Artists hosted five outdoor “Paint The Town” events in its place. AMR Artist Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) with a mission to connect emerging and established artists with art lovers, local businesses and art galleries.
This tour is an opportunity to interact with artists while visiting their private studios, allowing for an intimate look at distinctive works of art.
Free to the public, the event is possible through local business sponsors, funds from the A. Lindsay and Olive B. O’Connor Foundation, from the Delaware County Arts Grants, a regrant program of the NYS Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the state Legislature administered by the Roxbury Arts Group.
