We have decided to go ahead with our Oxford Studio Tour this year, given the hopeful outlook of having vaccines, the ability and knowledge of everyone to more easily comply with COVID-19 prevention strategies, and the desire to do something fun that isn’t online!
It will occur on May 1 & 2, 2021, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. All precautions will be taken to ensure a safe tour for everyone, given the current pandemic. Please follow all guidelines and instructions at each location. Masks will be required at all times. We thank you for your cooperation and patience in this!
We will be using the brochures that we had printed for the 2020 tour, however they may not be available in some of the places you are accustomed to seeing them. We have not distributed them yet, and that won’t be happening for a little while. A notice will go out from here when we do, so you will know where to find them. You could also ask one of the artists for one – you can use the contact information for an artist here on the site, or you can use our contact us page.
There will be several changes from the original tour plan, so these will be reflected on the website, and on the Google map of the tour. People move, venues become unavailable, etc. etc. None of the artists are required to participate, so some are opting out for this year. We will attempt to modify the brochures with the new information, but it would still be best for you to consult the website before embarking on the tour!
These are the changes we know of so far (for details see Studios and Artists by Location):
For Location #1: only 2 of the original 3 artists will be participating.
For Location #3: the location will be different, and only 3 or the original 4 artists will be participating.
For Location #13: the location will be different.
For Location #14: this location is completely cancelled
For Location #16: the location will be different.
