Open Studios Art Tour 2015
Yes, it's that time of year again. The Santa Cruz County Open Studios Art Tour is coming up on the first three weekends in October. Events leading up to the Tour begin with the opening of the Preview Exhibit at the Santa Cruz Art League on September 26th, and the "meet the artists" reception on Sunday, September 27th from 3 to 6. At the reception you can meet many of the Open Studios artists, see a representative sample of artists' works, listen to live music, and enjoy tasty treats and libations. The Open Studios Art Tour happens throughout Santa Cruz County. This is a juried event showcasing around 300 of the best artists in the county. With so many to see, the tour is divided between North County and South County artists. I am in North County, and my studio will be open from 11 to 5 on October 3 and 4. I will also be open for the Encore Weekend, October 17 and 18. Note that South County artists will be open October 10 and 11. For information on all artists, with maps directing you to them, get the Artist Guide ($5) at locations throughout the county. The IOS and Android apps will be available soon. The guide will also be available for free in the September 30th issue of the Good Times. For more information, visit the Arts Council of Santa Cruz County website.
