Can artists be voters?
The short answer is yes.
We recognize that you may be inherently familiar with other artists’ work and that you may be able to quickly duck out and visit nearby studios that are next door from your own. In this, we allow you to be a voter, but remember you have to be in your own studio during the open studio weekend, so even if you quickly check into another artist’s studio you should be within sight distance of your own so that you can greet any potential visitors.
To become a voter, please login to the website with your account and look for the “Become a Voter” button on your dashboard. You’ll need to agree to a terms of service prior to voting.
The website will have an itinerary feature, where registered voters are encouraged to create lists of artists they’d like to see during the open studio weekend. Since you need to be in your studio and can’t fully take advantage of an itinerary, we suggest that you use this feature to create a list of studios that you recommend and share it with others. It’s a great way to share a “must see” list of studios with friends.
