Drive around Loudoun County, Virginia, and you’ll encounter gorgeous vistas—bucolic byways past fields and farms, and history-drenched communities such as Waterford and Leesburg. More proof that these surroundings are inspiring: The county is home to dozens of artists working away in ceramic, paint, metal, and other mediums.
On Saturday and Sunday, June 20 and 21, more than 60 artists in Western Loudoun County are opening their studio doors to the public. On a self-guided tour, visitors can pop into any of the studios, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., to chat with the artists, and to see and possibly buy their works.
This is the 10th anniversary of the studio tour, which is free. For more information, click here; for a brochure with a description of each artist and a map of the studios, click on “View the full 2015 WLAST booklet online.”
