The Center for the Arts Fall Colors Open Studios Tour is a great way to get to know local artists in Nevada City and Grass Valley. Seventy Two artists open up their creative spaces and invite you to stop by and see where they work, their art and demonstrations. You can check out the online guide or pick up your copy of the book at The Center for the Arts. Open Studios is the first two weekends (Saturday & Sunday) of October 10am-5pm. Obviously I couldn’t make it too all of the studios today, but I did enjoy my visits to LeeAnn Brook, Ruth Chase, ASiF Studios (with photos of Rebecca Bleau, Kathryn Wronski, Jerianne Van Dijk, Jill Mahanna and more), Betsy Lombard, Mowen Sculpture and Kathy Frey. With so many creative people making and enjoying art in our community, its reason to celebrate. So if you haven’t popped in to visit an artist (or 10), mark your calendars and get out and explore, just follow the signs, you never know where you’ll end up! If you did visit a studio, or plan to visit one, feel free to post a comment and share.
