About the Tour
Founded by Gorge artists in 2006, the Gorge Artists Open Studios Tour is a yearly public tour showcasing the wonderful art of Gorge artists and providing insight into the environment in which art is created. It is our mission to advance the art and encourage artists in the Columbia River Gorge by building community among artists and the public, promoting art and business education, and providing opportunities for the public to experience and enjoy art.
