About Open Studios Art Tour (OSAT)

Visit ChicoOSAT.com all year for artist updates of available artwork. 

Open Studios Art Tour is an annual Butte County tradition, produced solely by Chico Art Center (CAC) volunteers as our major fundraising project of the year. Artists share their artwork and processes in their studios; some present together and a few artists are exhibiting online only.

Many thanks to our sponsor, Heithecker Financial and local businesses advertising in the guidebook and ChicoOSAT.com. We hope you’ll support local artists and businesses with your patronage.
