Boise Open Art Studios (BOSCO) Tour 2017 takes place Friday, October 13 from 4-8pm, Saturday October 15 and Sunday October 16, 10am to 6pm. Hours may vary, so check the Studio Tour Guide (available in The Boise Weekly, Boise Art Museum, ArtSource Gallery, and at ) to verify. To visit an artist’s studio is to see the artist’s mind at work. Learn about the materials they use, find out what inspires them and see how both shape the resulting artwork. Boise Open Studios weekend is an opportunity to ask questions, interact with local artists and buy work directly from the creator. The tour includes an art giveaway- inside each Studio Tour Guide is a Passport, at each studio visited the public receives a stamp to put on their Passport. Each completed Passport is entered in a drawing for a chance to win art from BOSCO artists. Artists’ Open Studios weekend kicks off on First Thursday, October 5th with Preview Night at Boise Art Museum, featuring demonstrations by BOSCO artists and digital samples of member’s art. Event maps and Passport for the art drawing will be available at the Boise Art Museum. The Open Studio Tour begins a week later October 13-15th. BOSCO is a non profit, professional artists’ volunteer organization dedicated to the visual arts, with a goal of promoting and fostering a greater understanding of the creative process. Members apply and are selected by an independent juror annually. Members work in a variety of media including fiber, book arts, pottery, photography, oil, acrylic and watercolor painting, printmaking, encaustic, glass, custom furniture, sculpture, and enamel and in a wide variety of styles. The public is encouraged to attend the opening event or visit our website to plan the weekend’s route. With a record number of 60 participating artists, there’s a lot to see!
