Join intrepid art lovers on a unique self-guided odyssey through Topanga Canyon for the Artists’ Studio Tour this Saturday and Sunday, May 30-31.
The process of creating art is often a mystery to gallery or museum viewers who only see the finished work.
As you discover Topanga’s beautiful back roads and breathtaking vistas, its artists roll out the red carpet and welcome visitors into the sanctuary of their studio – 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. See and hear how the artists turn their inspirations into art, and the techniques they employ.
A highlight of the tour is the Silent Auction at the Saturday night reception at Topanga Canyon Gallery. Participating artists contribute 8”x8” works of original art which will be taken home by the highest bidder.
Tickets for both days are $15 in advance at topangacanyongallery.com or $20 at the door the day of the tour. Children under 16 tour for free. The tour begins at Topanga Canyon Gallery where work from each artist will be on display with the site number to assist in route planning with the tour map.
