What started out as a casual monthly discussion between local artists has evolved into “Four years of making art local.” We can only imagine visiting the studio of Andrew Wyeth in Chadds Ford 60 years ago. Chester County had yet to become the icon of American landscape painting. It would have been an opportunity to experience history being made and the art that was an integral part of it. Today a new generation of Chester County artists open their studios, building on this artistic legacy. Chester County Studio Tour is a self-guided trail that connects and highlights these local yet extraordinary artists.
Chester County studio tour invites friends, families, art enthusiasts and the curious to experience and meet a variety of astonishing artists as they exhibit their work during this two-day event. This unique and intimate opportunity creates a free unlimited access to the artists, and a clearer understanding of our story and creative process.
We invite you to browse the artists, and then download the map or see the map below and choose a road. Follow it through the winding roads and rolling hills until you reach the door of an artist’s studio. There you can join us in our journey and begin experiencing art everywhere in Chester County.
In late 2006, Jeff Schaller hatched an idea to create a dialogue between some of the local artists in and around the Chester county area. In the guise of a critique, the main intention was to provide networking and the sharing of resources, contacts and information. Artists of all disciplines took part in monthly meetings, from professional gallery artists to outdoor festival artists and artists that only worked part-time outside of a normal day job. Representational artists struggled with commentary and input on abstract work, while abstract expressionists attempted to find direction and meaning in representational work. “Let’s try turning it sideways” was often heard at the meetings.
After Jeff Schaller held an open studio in spring of 2008, the idea was launched to create a tour of connected artist studios from this ragtag group of arguing pseudo-intellectuals. Thus, the Chester County Studio Tour was born.
