The 2022 Jazz & Beyond Music and Art Festival this August will include the fourth annual Carson City Open Studios Tour on Friday, August 19, 12 to 5 p.m., at the Bliss Mansion and the NAA Gallery, and Saturday and Sunday, August 20 and 21, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at multiple studios throughout Carson City.

This admission-free, contemporary cultural event will showcase about 30 local artists, presenting a wide variety of exceptional visual art and art demonstrations, from painting, sculpture, and 3D art to jewelry and photography, in about a dozen individual and shared studio spaces. Some locations will include live music.

A work by each artist selected for the Open Studios Tour will also be exhibited in the Summer Show at the Nevada Artists Association Gallery, July 30 to September 9. The public is invited to meet the artists at a reception at the Gallery on Sunday, August 7, from 2 to 4 p.m.

A list of artists with a map of studio locations will be available. For more information and an application for artists who want to participate, see, or email

The Open Studios Tour art event is presented by the Mile High Jazz Band Association as part of the 19th annual Jazz & Beyond Music and Art Festival and is supported in part by grants from the Carson City Cultural Commission, the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, and private donations.
