Greenville Open Studios 2023

Greenville Open Studios is a FREE and self-guided tour. Artists will welcome you into their studio spaces which may be in their home. Look forward to discovering new parts of Greenville, discovering the behind the scenes magic of how art is created and having wonderful conversation with creative and talented people!

Choose artists you would like to visit by using the website, catalogue or app. Plan out your weekend beforehand or travel studio to studio based on who is nearby on the map. 

Greenville Open Studios celebrates the local visual arts community with free studio tours for the public. What began as an idea among a small group of artists to raise awareness of their practice in the greater community has evolved into a full-fledged annual event. This exciting tradition is now celebrating its 21st year!

The goals of Greenville Open Studios are to provide free and convenient community access to visual arts, to educate and create a dialogue between artists and the general public by opening artists’ places of work and inviting the community-at-large to participate in the creative process and to create new marketing opportunities for artists. It is the organizers’ desire that the project will open up the world of visual artists to everyone – from the seasoned collector to the first-time art buyer to the curious general public.

Last year, the 2022 self-guided tour featured 150 artists and their studios-100 studio locations varied throughout a 15-mile radius of downtown Greenville with Easley, Greer, Travelers Rest and Simpsonville included. The 2023 Open Studios catalog will be relased in October. The 2022 Open Studios catalogue remains available for pick up in their office, and serves as a vital resource for art supporters.
