Now in its fourteenth year, the Art drive is an open studio event, organized by Dartmouth and Westport artists, that educates visitors and positively impacts the local economy. This juried studio tour is intended to be a unique opportunity to visit working artists in their unusual and dramatic studio settings, spotted among the area’s villages, lovely farm land and sea coast.  The Art drive showcases creative and professional works – some of the area’s premier painters, ceramic artists, photographers, jewelers, fiber artists, woodworkers, and metal artists participate in this annual event. Each year members endeavor to improve and enhance the quality and diversity of work offered to visitors.

Art lovers and collectors alike will enjoy a great day trip, or weekend escape, while touring the historic Southcoast towns of Dartmouth and Westport, MA. 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.
