Silicon Valley Open Studios

The Spring Silicon Valley Open Studios event features 300+ artists from all over the Bay Area. This live, in-person and line 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. In the past we have provided a Fall online show and sale as we all adjusted to the pandemic and lack of in-person events but plan to create new events and opportunities going forward.

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