What began as an informal artists' confab has morphed into the popular Chester County Studio Tour, which will be held this weekend - from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Five artists - Amelia Furman, Kirsten Fischler, Erica Brown, Kerry Sacco and Christina Oddo - will join Jeff Schaller at his Downingtown studio, and five others - Brian Eppley, John Hannafin, Steve Oliver, Lele Galer, and Stephen Brehm - will show their work at David Oleski's West Chester studio.

Food, music, and a book-signing by Catherine Quillman, who recently published a book about regional artists, will add to the day's festivities. For more information, visit http://www.chestercountystudiotour.com/.
