Art Harvest

In 1993, Arts Alliance of Yamhill County, a grassroots organization of visual artists, opened their studios to the public for the first annual Art Harvest Studio Tour. Since then, thousands of visitors have come to this beautiful part of Willamette Valley wine country to meet some of the area’s talented artists — many of regional and national acclaim — to watch demonstrations, and admire and purchase their latest work. 

This year, to honor the tour’s 20th anniversary, many artists will be displaying art featuring the number 20. Guests are encouraged to discover as many commemorative “20” pieces as they can. 

The tour, Oct. 5–7 and 12–14, includes the following artists (by city):
