North Coast Open Studios 2014



Weekend 1 is May 31-June 1 and Weekend 2 is June 7-8, 2014. Studios are open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, unless otherwise noted. Visitors to North Coast Open Studios will have a rare opportunity to see what happens inside an artist's creative space. Meet the artists and see work from a broad spectrum of art styles, including painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, glass, fiber, jewelry, furniture, ceramics, tattoo and more.

During this free showcase for the arts, visit mid-career and emerging artists in both traditional and non-traditional spaces. The artists will be available to discuss their creative process, display their recent works and offer works for sale. In addition to the artists who will open their studios during the event, there is a special section of artists whose studios are Open By Appointment year round.

Also, if you can't visit an artist during their open weekend, keep in mind that artists enjoy visitors, and most will open their studios by appointment throughout the year. However you plan your visit to North Coast Open Studios, you will find a dazzling display of fine arts and crafts to fit all styles and budgets. Get to know your local artist and enjoy the amazing variety of art Humboldt County has to offer! North Coast Open Studios is a free event, so there is no admission charged at any venue. Want more information about North Coast Open Studios? Check out the North Coast Open Studios homepage or on Facebook!
