Art Season is Upon Us!

Art Season has officially opened in Santa Cruz -at least that’s what I call it- with this past Sunday’s reception for the Open Studios preview exhibit at the Santa Cruz Art League.

The sign points the way.

New this year: there’s an app for that. You can download an Open Studios map app for your iPhone, iPad, or Droid. Sort by type of art, location, name, create a route, and find out where to stop for lunch. How cool is that? Here is the app in action at the Preview Show.

For the more tradition-minded, you can buy an Open Studios calendar at any one of more than 40 venues in Santa Cruz county. Or just follow the green signs during Open Studios weekend. Studios in the South County will be open this weekend.

The Preview Exhibit – a great way to see a sample of all 300+ artists’ work in one place – is at 526 Broadway, and is open through October 21.

My studio will be open October 13 & 14 and October 20 & 21, 11am – 5pm each day. Come on by – there’s a lot of new art to see! Find me on the calendar or on the app, or just come to 816 Hanover Street, here in lovely Santa Cruz.

  1. How wonderful of you to blog about the opening and the exhibit! So thankful for your support and glad to be able to include you and your art in this year’s tour!

  2. I wish I could be there again this year- I had a great time last year, both helping at your place & visiting other artists in the ‘hood. Best wishes for a very successful Open Studio!
