    Open Studios is now OpenArts

    On January 1, 2010, the Open Studios organization became known as OpenArts. This name change is in recognition of our broader role in the arts and the community. “Open Studios” will continue on as the brand name for our premier fall event.The Board’s decision to undergo a name change was the result of the acquisition of Clementine Studio, the Spring Art Fair and the Holiday Market. Suddenly, Open Studios was so much more than a fall artist studio tour.

    OpenArts is:

    * The Open Studios Fall Artist Tour
    * The Open Studios Spring Art Fair
    * The Open Studios Holiday Market
    * The Clementine Studio
    * The Open Studios Gallery at Rembrandt Yard
    * Education Links

    In an effort to inform the public that all of these events and activities are owned and presented by one organization, it has became apparent that a new umbrella name is necessary. We hope you understand the need for this change and trust that we will continue to promote our events and activities with the familiar brand redundancy we all know and love.
