Artists once again welcome visitors into their studios the weekend of November 22 and 23 during the popular Contra Costa Open Studios event. Information about participating artists, images of their artwork and a map of the studio locations will be posted here by mid-October, so please check back then for all of the details.
Call for Artists -- Fall 2014
All artists living or working in East Contra Costa County are invited to participate in this non-juried Open Studios event. During this popular community event, artists open their studios and galleries to the public, providing demonstrations, interacting with visitors, displaying and selling their work. Artists and fine craftspeople working in all media are welcome. There is no fee to participate. There's also no deadline, but signing up by mid-October is highly encouraged to give you the most visibility.
Here's how it works:
- This website will be the central source for up-to-date information, images and links for all participating artists and studios
- I'll be designing a flyer, postcards and a printable map, and will e-mail you the digital artwork so you can print out as many as you need for your own mailing list.
- I'll promote the event with press releases.
- The best way to bring visitors to your studio is through your own personal connections. I encourage you to spread the word with e-mailed invitations, posting on your own website or blog, and social networking (Facebook, etc.)
If you're interested in participating please e-mail me to let me know. I'll send you a list of blanks to fill in, and once I hear back from you I'll post your info and images here.
Here's wishing us all a fun and successful Fall 2014 Open Studios event!
