The 21st RiverArts Studio Tour, 2021

The 21st RiverArts Studio Tour, 2021

Saturdays and Sundays, October 16 & 17 and October 23 & 24.

Following the tradition of two decades and counting, artists around Kent County and its environs will open their studios to visitors on two weekends in October, to share their work, their processes, and the spaces where they create. Participating artists will have the opportunity to connect with and grow their audiences while showing and selling their work in dedicated spaces. Art lovers and visitors will explore the area in the beautiful peak of the Eastern Shore autumn on self-guided tours of artists' studios throughout the Upper Shore.

Approaching the dates of the Studio Tour, RiverArts will continue monitoring Covid 19 conditions and following local, state, and federal mandates and guidance from public health experts. We reserve the right to adjust policies and make decisions based on the needs of our organization, staff, and volunteers.

Artists may establish more stringent policies as they choose in their own studios. All studios and all visitors should follow current RiverArts policies as a baseline. If Studio Tour plans need to change, RiverArts will communicate updates via email, social media, and on this web page. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we respond to changing conditions to keep everyone safe.

Please join us to make the 21st Studio Tour another great event for the community and RiverArts.
