Gualala, California
. . . . . . . . . . . . Imagine combining the glorious drive along the Sonoma/Mendocino coastline with the excitement of visiting the individual studios of the artists who live and work there!

The North Coast Artists' Guild presents two weekends of this winning combination with the 13th annual Studio Discovery Tour, September 3rd & 4th and September 10th and 11th . Absolutely FREE, this is a self-guided tour along the beautiful Highway 1, to be enjoyed at your own leisurely pace. Studios will be open from 10-5 each day.

You can expect to meet artists, see professional, original artwork, to enjoy sensational scenery and to be served some light refreshments. Every studio is different, each stop unique. The 49 participating artists offer the interesting opportunity to meet them in person, see demonstrations and to view a wide array of original paintings, ceramics, sculptures, fountains, metal works, glass art, textiles, photography, jewelry and paper works.

Studios will be open along Hwy 1 from Annapolis, through Sea Ranch, Gualala, Anchor Bay, Manchester, Point Arena, and Little River (just south of Mendocino). Signs will help along the way and the brochure with a description of each artist and a detailed map make it a cinch to find the studios you will most want to see.

A wonderful day or two awaits you! A free map inside a 44-page, full-color brochure describing each artist is available by calling Claire McCarthy at 707-884-3444, or emailing your request to, or by visiting The Gualala Arts Center, Point Arena CityArt, or other businesses along the route.
