The 2020 Jazz & Beyond Music and Art Festival this August will include the second annual Carson City Open Studios Tour from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 22 and 23 at multiple studios throughout Carson City. This admission-free, contemporary cultural event will showcase about 30 local artists, presenting a wide variety of exceptional visual art and art demonstrations, from painting, sculpture, and 3D art to jewelry, photography, and pottery in about a dozen individual and shared studio spaces.
Local and regional artists have teamed up to bring this artistically eclectic event to Carson City. Many local artists are sharing their home studio spaces with artists throughout the region in order to create an amazing collection of art in our fair hamlet. Artists will not only be sharing their works but sharing their process as well. There will be hands-on art demonstrations at some locations. In lieu of demonstrations, where most practical, the artists will be sharing their process with visitors.
