Sonoma County Art Trails
Sonoma County Art Trails, one of the oldest juried annual Open Studio tours in the country, is celebrating its 38th year. This fall, 130 professional local artists from Healdsburg to Petaluma and Sonoma to the Coast will welcome visitors into their studios to see the paintings, prints, drawings, mixed media art, jewelry, sculpture, photography, fiber arts, ceramics, glass, and woodworking that make Sonoma County an art destination.
The last weekends of September 30 – October 1 and October 7-8, visitors can plan their own tour using the full-color Collector’s Guide (available in print and online). The self-guided tour and the Collector’s Guide are FREE! To locate the art studios and see an image of their work, download the guide at www.SonomaCountyArtTrails.org or pick up a print version at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts, 282 S. High Street, Sebastopol, CA 95472, and at stores and galleries throughout the County. Then follow the blue signs posted around the county that direct visitors to each studio. The Art Trails Preview Exhibit features a piece of work by each of the participating artists, taking place at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts. The Opening Reception will be on Thursday, September 14, from 6-8pm, and the show continues through October 15th, when we will host a closing reception. Additional smaller Preview Exhibits will be at Corrick’s and My Daughter the Framer in Santa Rosa, Gallery One in Petaluma, and Healdsburg Center for the Arts, and Bodega Art Gallery. Collector’s Guides are also available at these locations.
