Save the Date: San Francisco Open Studios 2011!Author:Stephanie Orma
Coming this October, San Francisco’s most-creative set will transform our foggy city into a Willy Wonka-esque wonderland for art enthusiasts. 900-plus established and up-and-coming artists will open their creative digs to the public for ArtSpan’s 36th annual SF Open Studios – the country’s oldest and largest event of its kind. From the Dogpatch to Fort Mason, the Mission to Ocean Beach, you’ll peep inside artist quarters, ogle, drool, and snag affordable eye-candy covetables. And no golden ticket is necessary as this month-long event is totally free.
Each weekend from Oct. 1–30, you’ll trek your art-seeking bum on a self-guided tour through a new neighborhood scouting local DIYers and their handcrafted wares. Expect to see Mission-based illustrator Paul Madonna (above) creator of SF Chronicle’s weekly strip, All Over Coffee.
The husband-and-wife painting and printmaking duo, Eric Rewitzer and Annie Galvin (above), will open their art-filled Dogpatch doors to the making of their quirky and wildly popular hand-carved relief prints
For a curated sneak peek of the many indie makers and their jaw-dropping collections, snag a view at the September 29 opening launch of the SF Open Studios Exhibition, showing through October 29. And with an added fifth weekend to this year’s events, get ready to paint the town! For more info, check out ArtSpan.
