Local residents, students and visitors are invited to participate in a self-guided tour of artists’ studios throughout San Benito County during the San Benito County Arts Council’s annual Open Studios Art Tour from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 14 and April 15.
This year’s tour features 29 local artists and artisans and showcases works in painting, photography, pottery and ceramics, stained-glass, jewelry and more! Open Studios is a great way for locals and out of town visitors to meet the artists, view and purchase original works of art, learn more about the processes of art-making and enjoy a scenic tour throughout San Benito County.
A free map of the artists’ studios & the artist directory can be downloaded online at sanbenitoarts.org. Maps are also available at ARTspace at 240 Fifth St. in downtown Hollister or at the San Benito County Chamber of Commerce.
