East Bay Open Studios (EBOS) at Valley Art Gallery
DUE TO COVID-19, THIS EVENT IS BEING RESCHEDULED. DATE TBD.
What Is EBOS? The Annual East Bay Open Studios Event has been an ongoing tradition in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 40 years. Open Studios are free self-guided tours of artist studios and exhibition spaces throughout the East Bay (Alameda County and Contra Costa County) in over 12 different cities. This event is free for the public to enjoy.
Where: Art collectors and enthusiasts enjoy one-on-one interactions with artists and have the opportunity to learn about what inspires them, and purchase art directly from the artists. In this case, the setting is at Valley Art Gallery, but alternative exhibition spaces may include: art studios, home studios, outdoor venues and other exhibition spaces. Refreshments and demonstrations may be part of this event.
How do I learn more? Printed guidebooks and online artist directories guide visitors to the artist studios and exhibition spaces around the entire East Bay where the participating artists show. During the event, there are street signs directing you to artist locations. The event is a great opportunity for artists and art collectors to connect with one another in interesting and inspiring environments.
