You won’t want to miss this opportunity to meet Bay Area artists, see their work and support the arts in Silicon Valley. This is not just a “sales” event, Artists want to connect and share their art with the community.

Each weekend will highlight artists of a local Bay Area region:

Weekend 1 — May 4-5 – Coastal and Northern Peninsula
Weekend 2 — May 11-12 – Mid-Peninsula
Weekend 3 — May 18-19 – South Bay

Silicon Valley Open Studios 2024 Directories featuring 375 artists at local studios are available in over 500 locations around the SF Bay Area. You can find them now at Libraries, Chamber of Commerce Offices, Restaurants, Coffee Houses, Post Offices, Community Centers, and other convenient retail locations.


You Can Also Help the Arts Thrive with Financial Support

Help Artists & the Art Community Thrive.

There are many ways to get involved and show your enthusiasm for the visual arts in your community.
I am interested in volunteering in the following areas:


Silicon Valley Open Studios

Silicon Valley Open Studios, held annually in May,  features 300+ artists from all over the Bay Area and Coastal Area. This live, in-person and online event gives the community an opportunity to meet locals artists, see their studios and talk to them about their work during these designated weekends.

Throughout this free event, the public can enjoy a vast variety of visual expression, including painting, mixed media, photography, sculpture, jewelry, calligraphy, ceramics, fiber arts, pottery, mosaics, metal work, glass, drawing, printmaking, watercolor, woodworking and many more unique and creative one-of-a-kind works of art.

Other Artist Opportunities

We are working to create more opportunities and extra ways for our artist to sell art, get exposure and connect with other artists including social mixers to get to know other artists, preview exhibits before Open Studios, educational webinars and workshops and many ways to volunteer and get involved.

Reach out to us if you have an idea or suggestion for an event, space for an exhibit or another opportunity for artists.
