2nd Annual Oahu Open Studios Event Features 51 Artists and Begins First Friday, November 6

The Annual Oahu Open Studios Event is a free art event that includes an Opening Celebration and Preview Exhibition and followed by 2 weekends of self-guided tours of artist open studios and exhibition spaces around the island. OOS enjoyed a great turnout last year, generating over 1,400 individual studio and exhibition visits and over $47,000 in art sales was made directly between artist and art collector in last year's event. The event follows a model that has been very successful on the mainland for decades, where artists and artisans open up their studios and exhibition spaces to show and sell their work to the public as well as "talk story", connect, and inspire visitors. Some artists also give live demonstrations of their process and techniques. The entire event is free to the public.

Visitors are invited to join the artists at the Opening Celebration and Preview Exhibition on First Friday, Dec. 6 in downtown Honolulu at Bishop Place, where they can enjoy live music, preview artists' work, and pick up a copy of the OOS guidebook. Guidebooks will also be available throughout the duration of the event at various retail pickup locations around the island which will be updated on our website. Visitors then design their own self-guided tours, either by referring to their printed guidebook or by using our online artist directory and Google maps on our website.
