About the Tour

Founded by Gorge artists in 2006, the Gorge Artists Open Studios Tour is a yearly public tour showcasing the wonderful art of Gorge artists and providing insight into the environment in which art is created. It is our mission to advance art and encourage artists in the Columbia River Gorge by building community among artists and the public, promoting art and business education, and providing opportunities for the public to experience and enjoy art. 

Gorge Artists Inc., is a not-for-profit corporation. It launched with sponsorship from The Dalles Art Center, a grant from the Wasco County PUD, and the work of volunteer organizers and founders. It was founded by John Maher, Pat Bozanich and Marian Dyche in 2006.
