Unique opportunity to meet Bay Area visual artists returns in May

SILICON VALLEY, CA — March 28, 2023 — Visit more than 300 local artists at the 2023 Silicon Valley Open Studios (SVOS) during three weekends in May.

SVOS gives art lovers and collectors behind-the-scenes access to established and emerging artists from San Bruno to Gilroy and coastal communities from Pacifica to Half Moon Bay. This free event, the largest fine art show open to the public in the San Francisco Bay Area, features painting, sculpture, jewelry, photography, woodworking, mixed media, pastels, pottery, metalwork, textile art, and more.

“What makes SVOS so special is the opportunity to support local artists and meet them in person,” said Stephen Toll, president of Silicon Valley Visual Arts, organizers of SVOS.

Silicon Valley Open Studios 2023 will be held the first three weekends in May, highlighting artists from a different region each weekend:

  • Weekend 1 — May 6-7: Coastal Artists
  • Weekend 2 — May 13-14: Mid-Peninsula Artists
  • Weekend 3 — May 20-21: South Bay Artists
