2024 AMR Open Studios Tour: Open the Door to Art


At the end of July, over 60 local artists and galleries will open their doors to the public. Meet the painters, sculptors, printmakers, photographers and mixed media artists that live and work in Andes, Arkville, Bovina, Denver-Vega, Fleischmanns, Halcottsville, Margaretville, and Roxbury. The 2024 AMR Open Studios Tour: Open the Door to Art will be July 26, 27 and 28 from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. each day. 

AMR Artists Inc., a non-profit organization, plays a vital role in connecting local emerging artists with established professionals. AMR stands for Andes, Roxbury and Margaretville, the three original towns involved in the Open Studios Tour when it first began in 2012. Dedicated to fostering a welcoming environment for artists and art enthusiasts, AMR works to bridge the gap between the Hudson Valley and the Western Catskills, positioning Eastern Delaware County as a dynamic regional hub for visual arts and fine crafts. Their programs actively integrate talented local artists with Main Street businesses, galleries, the community, and tourists.

This year’s student’s showcase will take place during the Open Studios Tour at the Andes Hotel, and will feature young artists from Andes Central, Margaretville Central and Roxbury Central schools. New this year is a Creative Hub at the Galli Curci Theater in Margaretville, featuring seven new artists that do not have accessible home studios. Five galleries will be on the tour this year: Longyear Gallery and the Huichol Art Gallery at Blue Deer Center in Margaretville; 1053 Gallery in Fleischmanns; Andes Academy of Art and Hawk + Hive in Andes.

The kick off party, having become a tradition and drawing over 200 people in 2023, will be hosted this year by Birman’s gallery at 1053 Gallery in Fleischmanns  Thursday, July 25 from 5-7 p.m.

The AMR Open Studios Tour is free to the public, sponsored this year by 1053 Gallery in Fleischmanns, the O’Connor Foundation, Delaware County Arts Grants, a regrant program administered by Roxbury Arts Group, and many loyal sponsors. Look for maps at local businesses.
