A self-guided art tour in the City of Poughkeepsie. Come support our local artists!

Over one weekend each year since 2015, artists and art(s) spaces in Poughkeepsie, NY have coordinated to create "Poughkeepsie Open Studios." This annual event brings together all ages of artists, curators, arts educators, performers, and art-appreciators. We invite you to connect with participating artists about their creative processes, inspirations & methodologies.

Poughkeepsie Open Studios presents, a self-guided, all-inclusive art tour on September 9 & 10, 2023

Join us in the City of Poughkeepsie on a self-guided tour and visit with Poughkeepsie-based artists in their studios, visit "pop-up" art sites, go to an exhibition at a local gallery, attend an artist talk, participate in artmaking, and more! Locations within the City of Poughkeepsie vary each year.

We hope the Poughkeepsie Open Studios weekend will highlight Poughkeepsie-based artistic talent, offer engagement across artistic modalities, support artists, and strengthen our connections through art.
