Once a year, the Gardiner Open Studio Tour (GOST) – an artists’ collaborative – opens their studio doors so visitors can get a rare look ‘behind the scenes.’ This free, self-guided tour takes place Saturday and Sunday, June 9-10, 2018 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. You can meet these talented artists in their workspaces, experience demonstrations of their art or craft, share their philosophies and observe their techniques. Visit gardineropenstudiotour.com for a tour map and more information. The GOST tour winds through Gardiner NY with the stunning Shawangunk Ridge as a backdrop. This is also a great opportunity to shop for wonderful local art.
