What are Artists’ Open Studios events?
The Kauai Art Tour showcases fine art & fine craft in a wide range of styles & media. The event contributes to public awareness about the quality & diversity of creativity the art community on Kauai has to offer & offers Tour visitors – both local & tourist alike – opportunities to see & purchase a wide range of original work directly from individual artists as well as talk story with them about their process and creations.
Artists are encouraged to give live demonstrations, talk story about their art and process, serve refreshments, sell their work, connect with Tour visitors & create unique exhibition spaces for the public to enjoy.
The Kauai Art Tour and its Preview Exhibit are free to the public.
All are welcome.
