Rockingham County Arts Council in Wentworth, NC, Gears Up for 2012 Artists Open Door Studio Tour – Nov. 9 – 11, 2012

The Rockingham County Arts Council has started planning for the 2012 Artists Open Door Studio Tour. All area artists are encouraged to reserve the weekend of Nov. 9-11, 2012, to participate in the tour.

New this year will be extended days and times to allow visitors the opportunity to visit artists in different parts of the county on different days. As with last year, there will be an exhibit of participating artists’ work at the Dan River Art Market & Gallery the weekend of Nov. 9, along with a closing reception to celebrate the art and artists in our county on Sunday, Nov. 11.

The tour is a wonderful opportunity for area artists to showcase their work and workplaces to area residents as well as the numerous out-of-town visitors that attend the tour. This year, area businesses are encouraged to participate in the tour by hosting artists who may not have their own workspace but who still wish to be part of the tour. Special marketing and promotions will be offered to participating businesses.

The Arts Council is seeking area artists and businesses to lend their voice to the planning process for this year’s tour. If interested, please contact Executive Director Kathryn Gauldin at 336/349-4039 or e-mail to ( For information about the Arts Council, please visit (
