The Hilltown Open Studio Tour

The first-ever Hilltown Open Studio Tour was held on June 23 & 24, 2018.  The event was a great success. Visitors from all over New England spent the weekend discovering the beauty of our region, and the talent of our Hilltown Artists. The tour featured work by 26 artists across four towns, with works spanning more than 10 diverse mediums.  Plans are already underway for our 2019 tour on June 22 & 23.  Please sign up for our mailing list to be informed of tour updates, and other Arts Alliance exhibitions and talks.
