The Opening Celebration/Preview Exhibition for the New East Bay Open Studios Event will inspire you on many levels.
Held at the beautiful, Oakland Scottish Rite Center, on the shores of Lake Merritt, the participating artists that will be showing their work at our Opening will open your mind and hearts to what is possible in this creative world that we live in.
Open Studios are free self-guided tours of artist studios and exhibition spaces throughout the East Bay (Alameda County and Contra Costa County). Artists pay a registration fee to participate and the event is free for the public to enjoy.
The art-loving, art-buying public enjoys one-on-one interactions with the artists and artisans and have the opportunity to learn about what inspires the artists, connect with the artists one-on-one and purchase art directly from the artists. Artist venues can range from gallery settings, art studios, home studios, outdoor venues and other alternative exhibition spaces. Many artists serve refreshments, some give live demonstrations and some may even have live music.
