Visual artists can apply online now to take part in the 13th annual Western Loudoun Artists Studio Tour, to be held June 2 and 3.

Loudoun-based artists working in all visual media may apply to this juried event. Those selected will open their studios to the public for two full days, exposing their work to visitors from the metropolitan region. Last year’s tour brought more than 1,000 visitors into more than 30 studios, allowing artists to connect with a targeted audience, increasing their visibility and providing an opportunity to promote and share their work.

Professional and emerging visual artists whose studios in western Loudoun County meet specified criteria may apply as “studio artists.” Loudoun artists who do not have a western Loudoun studio suitable for visitors may apply as “guest artists.” Two- and three-dimensional work will be considered, including but not limited to painting, drawing, fiber art, wood, ceramics, photography, sculpture, and jewelry.

The deadline for submission is Feb. 1. For answers to frequently asked questions, go to The application form can be found at

The studio tour is a joint project of Franklin Park Arts Center, Friends of Franklin Park Arts Center, and Round Hill Arts Center.
