Free Somerset County Rural Open Studio Tour is Aug. 10-11

SKOWHEGAN — In the rolling hills and farmlands of Somerset County, there’s a unique opportunity to visit the home studios of 21 artists in 16 locations Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 10 and 11, as part of the 10th annual Rural Open Studio Art Tour, hosted by Open Arts a committee of the Wesserunsett Arts Council.
The tour is free and self guided.
Visitors will be able to see original works in abstract, classical, mural, folk, metal, wood, pottery, sculpture, needlework, photography and even plumbing supplies. Combined with many spectacular summer gardens, it promises to be a day of art and beauty that highlights central Maine’s unique art community. Some artists are open on Saturday only.
Many of the studios are in rural locations and GPS directions might wrongly involve ATV trails and other non-usable “roads.” A tour map and participating artist details can be found at
