Get your 2019 Open Studio Weekend Directory today!


The annual OPEN STUDIO WEEKEND is a landmark event when artists across the Louisville Metro open their work spaces to the public. It’s a prime opportunity for fans, collectors, fellow artists, or those just curious about Louisville’s bustling scene to get behind-the-scenes views of creative processes, learn about new artists in the area, and take advantage of studio sales where available. For participating artists, it’s a wonderful way to connect with new audiences, inspire young visitors, and share deeper significance of how and why they make what they make. Louisville Visual Art and the University of Louisville Hite Art Institute partner to develop the roster of artists and create a comprehensive Directory that maps the studio locations and provides information on all participants. The Directory serves as a ticket to OPEN STUDIO WEEKEND, and is prized in the community as an invaluable guide to Louisville’s art scene. Participating artists are eligible to submit work to a juried exhibition that kicks off OPEN STUDIO WEEKEND at the UofL’s Cressman Center downtown.

Open Studio Weekend (OSW), a partnership of Louisville Visual Art (LVA) and the University of Louisville's Hite Art Institute, raises funds for LVA's Children's Fine Art Classes and the Hite Art Institute's Mary Spencer Nay Scholarship.

Now in its seventh year, this innovative weekend of fundraising events expands and deepens connections throughout the Louisville Metro art community while simultaneously supporting talented artists.  OPEN STUDIO WEEKEND increases cultural and economic opportunities for artists and art lovers alike. Last year’s Launch Party alone included 500 patrons.

OPEN STUDIO WEEKEND is an "economic-centric" program. Its success does more than bolster Louisville Visual Art and the Hite Art Institute; it also fosters the commercial viability of local artists and promotes visual art culture in Louisville. OPEN STUDIO WEEKEND is just one example of Louisville Visual Art's ongoing commitment to develop innovative, impactful opportunities that meet needs of the community while fulfilling mission of the organization.
