Now in its 19th year, the Naples Open Studio Trail weekend draws people from all over the region to the Finger Lakes. During this free event, visitors can stop by all the studios or only those that strike a particular art interest; many Studio Trail artists conduct captivating demonstrations; during the Studio Trail weekend, purchases and commissions can be made directly with the artist.
The artists will be following New York State’s COVID-19 guidelines and will require masks for every visit and social distancing when appropriate.
