About OSAT

Visit ChicoOSAT.com all year for artist updates of available artwork. With COVID-19 still active, we have adapted this year’s tour to accommodate required safety measures.

OSAT is an annual Butte County tradition, produced solely by Chico Art Center (CAC) volunteers as our major fundraising project of the year. 58 artists share their work; some present together, with a total of 37 studios. A few artists are exhibiting on ChicoOSAT.com 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.

How do I see the artwork?

Purchase an Access Code on the homepage or type in the Access Code located in your Guidebook.

Click on image thumbnails to explore each artists’ page. Search for specific media by clicking on “Search” in the menu bar. Then click on the medium of your choice. In the drop down box, select which weekends studios are open, or just type in the name of the artist you are looking for.

BENEFITS

Instead of having the traditional tour for only two weekends, as we have in previous years, we encourage you to visit ChicoOSAT.com all year, from October 1, 2020 – July 31, 2021 for artist updates and Studio Visit availability.

STAY SAFE

It will be important to practice social distancing, use masks and hand sanitizer for both visitors and the artists while visiting Artist Studios. Artists may make special requests when scheduling appointments with visitors.
