The reception at the Central Carolina Community College gallery in Pittsboro features one work by each participating artist on the tour and a display of art from the students of Chatham County Schools.

The Chatham County Open Studio Tour was founded in 1992 under the direction of Cathy Holt, with the goal of promoting artists living in the county. The Studio Tour was one of the many programs of the Chatham County Arts Council (CCAC, also known as ChathamArts).
The Chatham Studio Tour is one of the oldest in North Carolina, a prototype for other area studio tours, and a highly respected art venue. Since its inception, participation in the Studio Tour has grown from 32 artists to nearly 60 in recent years.
