Next Open Studios Weekend
Art lovers from around the Bay Area are invited to tour artists' studios in the Point Reyes area during the annual Point Reyes Open Studios (PROS) event this Memorial Day Holiday weekend, May 25-27. Over twenty PROS artists will display and demonstrate their work in their studios and homes from Friday through Sunnday, 11 AM to 5 PM each day. The Point Reyes Open Studios tour leads visitors along the back roads of this scenic rural area known for hiking trails, beaches, restaurants and inns less than an hour drive from San Francisco.
Many of West Marin's finest sculptors, photographers, potters, painters, printmakers and woodworkers will open their studios to the public beginning Saturday, May 25th. Visitors will be able to meet the artists, see new original work and explore the studios and workshops where the art is created. Several artists plan demonstrations of their complex craft techniques, and at least one studio will allow visitors to pull their own keepsake prints.
The free, self-guided tour of Point Reyes Open Studios enables visitors the opportunity to explore the many charming neighborhoods of this sparsely settled region, from the forested lanes of
Inverness Ridge to the grassy hills around Tomales Bay. Hand-built studios, gardens and sweeping views grace many of the venues. Visitors can pick up a free brochure/map at Toby's Feed Barn, The Station House Café and many other local shops and inns. Maps can also be found online at www.PointReyesArt.com, while the tour's street signs make artists' studios easy to find.
