Thank you artists and visitors for participating in Clark County Open Studios! Together we have made it a big success! What a great weekend filled with great art, great people and even great weather. The first annual Clark County Open Studio tour has exceeded our expectations and more importantly exceeded our visitors. Art lovers and the curious came out in the masses to attend this long over due event. Visiting numbers hit up to 300 in many of the central locations. Even more impressive were the high number of visitors out exploring the country side. North County studios averaged 150 visitors. Many people attending were local residence but we also had visitors from Portland, Salem, Longview, Tacoma, Seattle and the coast who came to Clark County specifically for this event. The response from participating artists and visitors has been overwhelmingly positive. We could measure this success by counting total people or adding up dollars but the real success here is what was shared and the connections made. So I thank you all for that. I invite anyone that participated to post their experience online so we can continue to share this wonderful event. To the many inquiries…yes this will be an annual event!
