Call for Artists

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 April 1st 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 connectionsI 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.

A few shared locations may be available for those who don't have their own space. Let me know if you're interested in information about those.
Here's wishing us all a fun and successful Spring 2014 Open Studios event!
