Something for Everyone

May 16, 2017

It’s time once again for Open Studios’ spring event, a 2-day (one evening) self-guided immersive experience into the worlds of our local artists.

See artists in situ at their studios, in local galleries, or in their homes, garages, and even front lawns. See assemblage art, sculpture, paintings, and mixed media. Shop for earrings, pocket books, pottery, and photography. Support local artists and welcome art (or more art) into your life and support an artist’s aim of actualizing his or her passion and being solvent—these are worthy goals!

Sixty-nine artists at 31 locations… Open Studios self-guided studio tour, June 2-4.

Maps may be procured on the Open Studios website here or printed guidebooks—after all, these guys were named the 2016 Altadena Business of the Year!—at Hoopla Emporium (see below), Pizza of Venice, Altadena Public Library, the Sidewalk Cafe, or Pasadena Antique Warehouse.
