The past three weekends, my wife and I have toured the Artspan Open Studios in the city (San Francisco). We love having the opportunity to see other artists in their work enviornment. Every time we go, I learn something new and I'm filled with inspiration. I highly recommend checking out Open Studios where you live. Here in the Bay Area, we are fortunate to have a lot of options at various times during the year. This weekend (and the next few) SVOS (Silicon Valley Open Studios) hosts their annual Open Studios Tours, where hundreds of artists open their studios up for anyone who wants to stop by and enjoy some art. If you are closer to Marin, they are also having Open Studios (for the next two weekends).
In June, ProArts puts on the East Bay Open Studios, where you can enjoy art in Berkeley, Oakland, Richmond, and surrounding areas.
In October, Santa Cruz is the place to be for art tours.
I hope you all have a chance to enjoy some art this weekend.
