Susquehanna County Artists’ Open House Weekend

Welcome to the Fifteenth Annual Artists’ Open House Weekend: A unique event that has become an art-lover’s tradition on Columbus Day Weekend – October 8, 9 & 10, 2011. All studios are open daily 10am-6pm.

This self-guided tour to 24 artists at 19 locations features the abundant beauty of Susquehanna County:

fused glass jewelry
unique wood-, gas-, & electric-fired ceramics
paintings in many media and styles
bird carving
field stone walls
porcelain painting
stained glass & glass tableware
contemporary wood furniture
fine art giclee prints

This is a great chance to observe art being created and chat with your local artists & crafts-people. Some of these studios are only open this one weekend of the year. Others will welcome you to return once you know the way.

On Monday, many artists demonstrate an aspect of their craft. This is an opportunity to see how it is done and you can enjoy some at-length conversation in relaxed surroundings. You may wish to inquire ahead as to the nature and time of the demonstration you are interested in. Some will be on-going. Some will be scheduled. All will be fun for the artists to share and a chance for you to learn something new or get some insight in to the ‘how and why’ of creative skill.

The tour is FREE. All artists have work for sale in their studios: some take credit cards. All welcome browsers. Some are handicap accessible. Contact the individual studios for details.

Artists donate a portion of their sales to benefit Florence Shelly Preserve, Woodbourne Forest Preserve and Friends of Salt Springs State Park. We encourage you to discover these beautiful natural areas in Susquehanna County.

Have fun…follow the hot pink ART arrows…if weather permits, bring a picnic or buy one from our ‘friends‘. We welcome you to our thriving art community in this picturesque corner of Northeastern Pennsylvania.

AFA artists on the tour include James Penedos, Charles Welles, Earl Lehman, Steve Conley and others.
