Marin Arts Open Studios & Festival
Throughout Marin County in Northern California, there will be a free, self-guided Open Studios Tour during the first two weekends in May.
More than three hundred artists will have their studios open (most for both weekends), and tens of thousands of people will make the tour. There are about sixty plein air painters involved.
The Marin Arts Council will display work from each artist at its new location, 906 4th Street, San Rafael. The exhibit runs from April 25 through May 23.
In addition to paintings, the event features sculpture, fiber, furniture, jewelry, weaving, metalwork, stained glass, photography, pottery and etchings. A related gallery exhibit will also be located at 888 4th Street, San Rafael.
The painting shown in the poster, above, is Mount Tamalpais from Lucas Valley by Kathleen Lipinski.
