Big welcome to Baker City Studio Tour in Oregon

Nestled in beautiful North East Oregon, Baker City oozes art and history. And every first weekend in October they host a fabulous diverse art studio tour - this year we're delighted to welcome to American Craft Week first time participants, the Baker City Studio Tour.
Crossroads Carnegie Art Center, Baker City, Ore.
During the first weekend in October local area artists open their studios to the public for the Baker City Studio Tour, which also includes a stop at the Crossroads Carnegie Art Center and other local galleries or facilities. The galleries host individual artists who can not open their studio to the public to demonstrate their craft, plus the organizations put on special exhibits for the tour. 
Centrally located at 2020 Auburn Ave., the Crossroads Carnegie Art Center, is an art corner stone for the town and the surrounding area. The old Carnegie library has been transformed in to a first class art center in an impressive building and what is inside is just as impressive.

The studio tour features approximately 20-25 individual artists covering a range of artistic media from sculpture, pottery, wood work, painting, mosaic and fibre art. Follow their updates on their blog. Get the brochure and map and head out to see the artists at work in their studios, talk with them about their process and buy yourself, or someone special, a unique gift. You can be sure of a warm welcome during American Craft Week at the Baker City Studio Tour in NE Oregon.
