AMR Open Studios Tour
AMR Open Studios Tour 2019 will take place Saturday and Sunday, July 27-28 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. with over twenty five participating artists in Andes, Roxbury, Halcottsville, Margaretville, Arkville, Fleischmanns, and surrounding area. Artists in all media and artistic disciplines will show their working spaces, and demonstrate and talk about the artistic process.
Launched originally in 2012 by Alix Travis, an artist and plein air painter living in Halcottsville, AMR has grown into a major cultural attraction in the Central Catskills region. Alix relocated, and since 2018, a team of artists have stepped up to sponsor the Catskills’ vibrant art scene.
Now called AMR Artists, the group has expanded art events for 2019 hosting more seasonal pop up shows in addition to the annual Open Studios Summer Tour. Their goal for 2019 is to “secure our area of Eastern Delaware County as a vibrant regional hub for celebrating creative and cultural experiences. By planning more art events, we hope to create more synergy between our local artists, seasonal tourism and local businesses.” The group uses a quote from Albert Einstein: “Creativity is contagious, pass it on.”
The 8th annual AMR Open Studios 2019 Tour promises to be more expansive than ever; with close to 30 artists opening their studios to the public. Past AMR Open Studios Tours have brought visitors from all over the world to our beautiful region here in Delaware County.
Open studio tours have become popular all over the country. Studio visits trigger questions that aren’t often asked in formal settings such as galleries and museums, and allow for a more intimate interaction with the artist and their artwork. Many people return annually to see what their favorite artists are up to, and look forward to a weekend getaway to experience the richness of our area’s businesses.
Mark your calendar for AMR Open Studios Tour 2019, a self-driving tour experience through the region’s most scenic vistas. Detailed brochures will be made available at all area’s businesses beginning in May.
