Lucky 13th Annual Artists’ Studio Tour

 

Join your neighbors and visitors on this unique self-guided odyssey through Topanga Canyon for the Artists’ Studio Tour, June 7 and 8. New art, new artists and new studios will be featured on this long-standing Canyon favorite. Thirty-five artists will display paintings, sculpture, photography, ceramics, jewelry, blown, fused and stained glass, mixed media, and more. There will be something for everyone from landscapes to abstracts, whimsical to traditional, and functional to decorative, and at affordable prices too since you are buying directly from the artist. The tour starts at the Topanga Canyon Gallery in Pine Tree Circle where you can pick up your ticket, map and plan your route by viewing examples of the artists’ work. Hours for the tour are 10 a.m.–5 p.m. on Saturday, June 7, and 11 a.m.–5 p.m. on Sunday, June 8.

There is a Reception and Silent Auction on Saturday from 5–8 p.m. The Silent Auction is a highlight of the tour where participating artists contribute 8”x 8” works of original art to be taken home by the highest bidder.

The process of creating art is often a mystery to gallery and museum viewers who only see the finished work. As you discover Topanga’s beautiful back roads and breathtaking vistas, our artists roll out the red carpet and welcome you into the sanctuary of their studios—the hive of creativity. In addition to work on display for collectors and art buyers, there will be demonstrations and works in progress for a truly behind-the-scenes experience.

The Studio Tour would like to thank our generous supporters: Topanga Homegrown, Chryssa Lightheart, Eric Nelson, The Canyon Bistro, Sienna Skin Care, Café Mimosa, Elaine Hanson, Inn of the Seventh Ray, Theatricum Botanicum, the Waterlily Café, and our loyal tour goers.
