The Ojai Studio Artists Fall Tour returns this weekend.

Seventy-three artists’ studios across the Ojai valley will open to the public.

"Ojai Studio Artists has been a tour — I think it's the longest running tour in California — starting back in the 1980s!" said Martha Moran from Ojai Studio Artists.

She says the studio tour gives collectors and the curious a chance to get an inside look at where the creativity takes place.

"It's fun to just to do lookie-looing in people's studios and house because some of them are just gorgeous," said Moran.

"The variety - so many artists are moving to Ojai, partially cause it's COVID and partially cause it's an arts community - but we have some really unusual and interesting artists in our group now," she told KCLU.

The Ojai Studio Artists Fall Tour runs from tomorrow through Monday (Oct 8-10).
