Santa Barbara Studio Artists brings you a two-day self-guided driving tour with the chance to meet more than 40 acclaimed artists and tour their private studios. This special event, that has gained national recognition, takes place Aug. 25 and 26 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Additional parts of this special event include the opening artists’ reception, held Aug. 24 from 5 to 8 p.m., and the month long preview exhibition from Aug. 2 to 29, both held at the Santa Barbara Frame Shop and Gallery. Santa Barbara Studio Artists is a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising the arts profile of Santa Barbara.
“We sought to revive the tradition of patrons visiting artists in their studios and we wanted to promote Santa Barbara as an arts destination,” says Francis Scorzelli, President of the Santa Barbara Studio Artists Board of Directors. “We are thrilled that in just over 10 years, our once fledgling event is now an established, annual highlight for our region.”
