East Bay Open Studios at the beginning of June is an ideal time to visit artists you know and also to discover some you don’t. The newly formed South Berkeley Artists group has been meeting regularly to discuss and show current work and now we get to share it with a much wider audience. Each member works to a high standard and the variety is amazing. We’re challenging visitors to make a trip to each one of the ten studios listed on our map and report back. The numbers correspond to the ProArts website map and you can also download our local map from the link below.
You know it makes sense
Visitors get an opportunity to see work in progress and discover where an artist might be heading as well as seeing and connecting with the materials and methods of each artist’s approach. Buying work directly from artists can also be a sensible financial move and many in our group are happy to take commissions.
We all look forward to seeing as many old and new friends as possible during these hectic first two weekends in June.
