An East Bay tradition for over 40 years, the Annual East Bay Open Studios Event is now coming to the Livermore Valley. Bothwell Arts Center is hosting artists studio spaces and will be a lively venue for art and live music. In addition, there are other area studios that are free and open for the public to see.
June 10 and June 11, 11 am-6pm
Open Studios are free self-guided tours of artist studios and exhibition spaces. Artists pay a registration fee to participate and the event is free for the public to enjoy. The Bothwell Arts Center will have demonstrations and refreshments and live music.
The art-loving, art-buying public enjoys one-on-one interactions with the artists and artisans and have the opportunity to learn about what inspires the artists, connect with the artists one-on-one and purchase art directly from the artists.
Printed guidebooks and online artist directories guide visitors to the artist studios and exhibition spaces around the entire East Bay where the participating artists show. During the event, there are street signs directing you to artist locations. The event is a great opportunity for artists and art collectors to connect one-on-one with one another in interesting and inspiring environments.
