East Bay Open Studios, presented by Oakland’s Pro Arts, is the largest and most exciting arts event in the region!
This year, June 2-3 and June 9-10, over 400 artists from all across the East Bay open their studios to the public, offering an opportunity for art fans of all ages to visit artists’ studios, peek inside their creative process, and purchase works directly from local artists. Since 1979, this event remains the largest art event in the region and draws an annual audience over 50,000!
The event features a Preview Exhibition at Pro Arts, 150 Frank H Ogawa Plaza, Oakland, on view May 1 - June 10, 2012.
All participating artists are featured in the annual Directory of East Bay Arts. Published and distributed in conjunction with East Bay Open Studios, the directory includes artist listings, a 12 month East Bay Arts Calendar and the East Bay Arts Index - an index of local arts organizations, galleries, venues, and artist groups.
Together, the Directory of East Bay Arts and East Bay Open Studios serve as essential resources for artists to cultivate new audiences for their work.
