SV Open Studios showcases local artists

Local artists are scheduled to open their studios to the public beginning this weekend during the annual Silicon Valley Open Studios event, slated the first three weekends in May.

Saturday and Sunday will feature artists from Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Atherton, Belmont, Burlingame, East Palo Alto, Hillsborough, Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Redwood City, San Mateo and Woodside. May 10 and 11 will showcase artists from Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Santa Clara, Stanford and Sunnyvale. Two Los Altos artists are slated to participate the weekend of May 17 and 18. All artists will open their studios from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Silicon Valley Open Studios is a nonprofit organization that has connected art enthusiasts with local art and artists for 28 years. More than 380 artists in the South Bay and on the Peninsula are participating in this year’s event.

Artists work in a variety of visual media – painting, watercolors, mixed media, jewelry, photography, sculpture and pottery.

“This free event enables visitors to spend quality time with the artists in a comfortable setting,” said Mel Thomsen, executive director of Silicon Valley Open Studios. “Visitors can talk with the artists, see a larger body of the artists’ work than is typically available and, in some cases, see the artists at work.”

Directories with listings and maps to the artists’ studios are available at more than 400 locations throughout the Bay Area. For more information, visit and click “Find a Directory.”
