Explore Great Art in the Redwoods

On the weekend on May 18 and 19 from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, explore local artists from north of Boulder Creek to south of Felton. See painters, sculptors, ceramicists, woodworkers, glass artists, photographers, and more. 26 artists in 15 locations will open their studios to the public, with many sharing spaces so you can see more art with fewer stops.  Just look for and follow the directions on the large fluorescent pink placards posted throughout the San Lorenzo Valley to find an artist’s studio.

Map it out

You can find a list of artists and a map of studio sites on the tour website: http://slvarttour.org/. Or pick up a map locally at the Santa Cruz Mountains Art Center in Ben Lomond, or at the Felton or Boulder Creek Public Libraries or other locations throughout Santa Cruz County. Or, if you’re up for a weekend drive, just follow the fluorescent pink signs from Highway 9 to the studio sites. Wherever you go, you’ll get the chance to meet the artists and learn something about the process they use to produce their art. Some studios will have ongoing demonstrations of glassblowing, ceramics, painting, and more.
