Visit the historic Poughkeepsie, New York area of the Hudson Valley for a weekend of the arts!

We would like to thank everyone for a successful 2019 Poughkeepsie Open Studios!

Visitors, Volunteers, Artists, Arts Organizations, Sponsors

We will be adding images to our 2019 photo gallery as they flow in to us.

This is an opportunity to interact personally with artists who live, work, or teach in our area, and to find out more about their inspirations, their creative processes, and the types of media they employ. While in the area, take time to experience the rich history and the broad cultural diversity of our community.

Poughkeepsie Open Studios is a free, self-guided tour of the Poughkeepsie, New York area.

Visit private working artist studios, temporary "pop-up" artist spaces and gallery exhibits, nestled in and around the historic buildings of our City.  Plan adequate time for some poetry, literature, history, food, historical tours, artistic demonstrations and public participation activities.
