Open Studio Weekend

November 4-5, 2017


One weekend each year, artists from all over Louisville open their doors for Open Studio Weekend!

This event is a wonderful opportunity for anyone who appreciates art - from enthusiasts to collectors - to see artists at work, get a glimpse into the process of making art, and in some cases, take advantage of studio sales. It's such an amazing chance to see the behind the scenes world of your favorite artists, as well as new artists that will quickly become your favorites!

This year, Open Studio Weekend is November 4 & 5, 2017. Please refer to our FAQ page to learn more about the weekend and registration process.

Artist information
Artists register your studio here. Deadline July 31, 2017



Open Studio Weekend (OSW) is a partnership of LVA and the University of Louisville Hite Art Institute to raise funds for LVA's signature program, Children's Fine Art Classes, and the Hite Art Institute's Mary Spencer Nay Scholarship programs.

This innovative weekend of fundraising events is in its fourth year, having replaced the partnership's annual art auction event of 47 years. The goal of this endeavor is to deepen our relationship with the community while simultaneously supporting local talented artists.  OSW expands cultural and economic opportunities for artists and art lovers alike. Last year, the Launch Party alone hosted 500 art patrons.

OSW is an "economic-centric" program: support for this program not only bolsters LVA and the Hite Art Institute, it also fosters the economic and business growth of local artists and promotes the visual arts culture in Louisville. OSW represents LVA's continuous quest to develop new, innovative and productive opportunities relevant to the community and to the organization.
