Open Studios was an extraordinary success this year, spokeswoman Tracy Bauer said, noting the turnout was easily 10 times larger than previous years.
"People were coming out of the woodwork and the sales were unprecedented," she said.
Artists said they were pleased with the large, steady flow of visitors and noted many new local art collectors.
"I sold 16 paintings, which far exceeded my expectations," said artist Stephen Sanfilippo. "There was actually a line on Sunday to buy artwork."
