    Artist studio tour goes forward September 26-27
    Despite the pandemic, and after the smoke, the Sisters Arts Association’s (SAA) fourth annual Artist Studio Tour will take place Saturday and Sunday, September 26-27, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in and around Sisters. This is a free, self-guided tour to individual studios. Thirty-six artists will demonstrate and show their art in 26 locations in and around Sisters Country. Because many artists will share studio locations, it will be easier for visitors to see more of them.
