The first two weekends in June, you're invited to discover the natural beauty and artistic abundance of Sonoma County during Art at the Source Open Studios. Along scenic highways and country roads, you can visit the working studios of members of Sebastopol Center for the Arts, which will be open to the public 10am-5pm.
Renowned for its artist community and bohemian culture, Northwest Sonoma County is rich with stunning landscapes, superb cuisine, and world-class wineries making it the perfect getaway to discover art. And when the day is done, spend the night in a cozy inn or B&B. Studio locations range from the coastal villages of Bodega Bay, to the inland communities of Valley Ford, Monte Rio, Guerneville, Forestville, Graton, Sebastopol, Occidental and West Santa Rosa.
The annual Art at the Source Tour features more than 165 artists in almost 100 studio locations, and the diversity includes painters, sculptors, potters, jewelers, photographers, glass, wood and fiber artists. Many studios have more than one artist.
There is something for everyone to explore and enjoy. To plan your tour, visit the Preview Exhibit at the Center for the Arts where each artist is represented; or consult the catalog to choose artists and follow the map to their studios.
The Art at the Source catalog is a year-round guide to local artists and businesses. After the Open Studio weekends, studios are open by appointment only.
