    The Chester County Studio Tour is back! On May 14 & 15, over 160 artists across 65 studios will display their work for art-lovers spanning the county. Artist and event organizer Jeff Schaller is thrilled to coordinate the Chester County Studio Tour for its 12th year.


    “This year has its own hurdles that we must overcome but we can move about freely and exchange a smile with all 165 artists on this year’s tour,” Jeff said. 


    Enjoy the works of returning tour artists as well as some new faces, proving that creativity continues to grow in Chester County despite the challenges of the past two years. The tour will feature exquisite works of painting, sculpture, jewelry, photography, paper, fiber arts, and so much more. 

    “We have nurtured our souls, grown creatively, and honed our talents. Now that this celebrated weekend in May is at hand, we will be tidying our studios and showcasing new art to present to the public,” Jeff said.  


    Chester County Studio Tour provides a unique opportunity for attendees not only to enjoy the works on display, but to interact with the artists who make them possible. Looking to add a unique piece of art to your home or office? Purchase a piece while on the tour and support the creative forces behind this classic Chester County event.


    The 2022 Chester County Studio Tour is proudly sponsored by Citadel Federal Credit Union. The tour is free and open to the public beginning on Saturday, May 14 from 10AM–6PM and continuing into Sunday, May 15 from 11AM–5PM.
