We hope you will join us as a Sponsor for the 4th Annual Martin County Artists Open Studio Tour.
All across the United States, open studio tours are growing in popularity and participation. The Martin County Open Studio tour has proven to be just as popular. This year we have over 40 local artist members of the Martin Artisans Guild planning to participate in the tour along with local business sponsors. Our sponsors will reach thousands through our public relations, brochures, advertisements in local newspapers, listings on the web and articles in local media.
The Martin Artisans Guild was created to nurture the production of Fine Art and Craft, increase awareness of local art, facilitate development and networking among working artists and create marketing venues for our members.
To promote Martin County as an art center
To provide opportunity for artists to exhibit original work to the public
To develop a sense of shared community and support among artists
To foster the concept that success for one artist benefits all artists
To present artists’ open studios as a venue for purchasing art.
The Martin County Open Studio Tour event provides an opportunity for local artists and crafts people to reach a broad audience, to educate our community and ultimately to develop new markets. During the Tour events, the general public is invited to view the artists’ studios and experience their creative environments.
The Martin County Open Studio Tour event welcomes the general public rather than a specific group. The is NO fee to attend the Martin County Open Studio Tour.
The economic benefits of Open Studio events to the community:
The Martin County Open Studio Tour attracts people from outside the community in addition to local residents. The event generates income for artists and for local businesses, restaurants and hotels. Visitors see work in may disciplines across a diverse range of media and styles.
Revenue to support the countywide open studios program comes from two sources: the artists’ application fees and private and corporate sponsors. This is the 4th year for the Martin County Open Studio Tour, and we anticipate tht over 8,000 visitors will attend the event this year. We have seen significant growth each year, and people are becoming more excited with each new tour.
Visitors will see a wide variety of work and become personally informed about art and craft processes, materials and the creative spirit. The public is educated to become patrons of the arts in their own way.
