Featuring 77 area artists at work, the tour kicks off tonight with a preview reception at the Center for the Arts in Grass Valley.

All studios will be open this Saturday and Sunday. Forty-six studios will be open the next weekend (Oct. 16-17). Tour hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. all four days. Open Studios Tour brochures, including maps, are at the Center for the Arts, Odyssey Books, Nevada City Picture Framing, J.J. Jackson’s and Nevada City Winery.
