The Art Drive



The Art Drive Celebrates its 11th Year in 2018!

Friday, Saturday, & Sunday
August 10 - 12, 2018
10am - 5pm



Now in our eleventh year, this open studio event organized by Dartmouth and Westport artists emphasizes educating visitors in some very unusual and dramatic studio settings, spotted among the area’s villages, lovely farm land and sea coast. 

The Art Drive, a juried studio tour, showcases creative and professional works by participating artists, some of the area’s premier painters, ceramic artists, photographers, jewelers, fiber artists, woodworkers, metal artists, and more participate in this annual event. Each year participating members endeavor to improve and enhance the quality and diversity of work offered to visitors. The Art Drive is intended to be a unique opportunity to visit working artists in their unusual and dramatic studio settings and uniquely emphasizes a consistently high level of professionalism and quality. 

Art lovers and collectors alike will enjoy a great day trip (or weekend escape) while touring the historic Southcoast towns of Dartmouth and Westport. With only 15 miles separating the studios, visitors will enjoy a scenic drive through this picturesque area with ample time for a picnic lunch at the beach or dinner at one of the many area restaurants.
