The Stockton Open Studios offers self-guided tours of Stockton Artists studios not regularly open to the public. It showcases art in a broad range of media and styles and fosters a greater understanding of the artistic process and provides the public with a unique opportunity to enter the world of the visual artist and experience how, why and where art is created. Open Studios offers visitors opportunities to see and purchase a wider range of original work by individual artists than at any other venue.
The visual arts are an important part of the art and cultural life of any community and are even more so in Stockton as it is experiencing an economic and quality of life renaissance.
Examples of the art to be seen on the tour may be viewed at the Student Gallery at Pacific (on Mendocino Ave between Pershing and Kensington) beginning on September 18 through October 13. Purchase your ticket and go to the gallery and decide which studios you wish to visit. Map out your studio tour and plan for a fruitful weekend of studio touring. Attend the reception on September 23 and meet the artists who will have their studios open on October 14 and 15. The reception hours are 3:00 to 6:00 pm.
Tickets are $20.00 each and are available at the following locations: Stockton Arts Commission office at 6 East Lindsay St., Tidewater Art Gallery, Elsie Mae Goodwin Gallery, etc., Frame Works, and other locations.
