Celebrating our 30th Anniversary this year!
This year, the Artists Open Studio tour provides its 30th annual free self-guided art adventure taking visitors to individual and group venues, supporting art and tourism in CT’s Quiet Corner.
Sponsorship gives you the opportunity to be seen by a very large audience. We print 30,000 tour guides annually. We mail over 5,000 to homes, our membership distributes approximately 18,000, with the remaining allocated to our sponsors. We have been featured in CT magazine and all news outlets in the region including TV and radio. Since 1988 we have drawn visitors from all over New England and New York, and anticipate more press coverage and visitors than usual, celebrating our 30th anniversary year.
When you support our many professional artists as a Sponsor you will have a year-round presence on our website www.aosct.org as well as a spotlight on our tour guide. You will also be given two posters announcing your proud support of the AOS tour.
Please take a minute to check out our website. It represents the scope and quality of our mission. We believe you will be impressed with the work you see from talented participating artists. You will also see where you, as a Sponsor, will be highlighted on our website with our existing Sponsors.
Our loyal visitors include collectors, designers, people who are curious about fine art, parents, teachers, emerging artists, and art patrons. The Artists Open Studios Tour is an incredible opportunity for visitors to meet Northeastern Connecticut's painters, sculptors, fiber artists, photographers, potters, jewelers, glass artists, metal smiths, wood-turners, and other fine artists, as well as, an opportunity to see what working artist studios are like. Visitors continue to make our tour a "must" on their calendars.
Your contribution of a minimum of $100.00 will provide you with a presence on our website for a full year. Application and payment must be received no later than May 1st.
