Open Studios is an annual self-guided tour of artists’ studios throughout San Benito County. The weekend art tour is preceded by a Preview Exhibition at the ARTspace ANNEX at 217 Fifth St. in downtown Hollister and celebrated with an Opening Reception from 6:30-8:30 PM, Friday, March 20th.

The Tour features local artists and artisans with works in painting, photography, pottery and ceramics, stained-glass, jewelry and more and is a great way for locals and out of town visitors to meet the artists, view and purchase original works of art and learn more about the processes of art-making.

Open Studios is also a great social, professional and networking opportunity for local artists. For questions or more information please feel free to contact the Arts Council at [email protected], call at (831) 636-2787 or visit sanbenitoarts.org.
