The Santa Fe Art Colony is pleased to announce it's 20th annual Open Studio/Artwalk Weekend.
The first weekend in May has been designated as the permanent date for future Artwalks.
Named for its' location on Santa Fe Avenue, the colony houses 57 studio residences.
Once a year, over 40 residents of the colony open their private studios to the public.
Also participating are some non-resident artists and sponsors providing art-related products.
This Artwalk is the easiest of its kind to tour. The architectural layout of the complex is compact,
and the grounds are enhanced by the efforts of residents with green thumbs in their palettes.
Refreshments are available in the garden for purchase.
It is a truly unique experience to see an artists work within the context of its creation. A glimpse
into the creative environment of the artist provides insight to the creative process that cannot be
gleaned from a gallery exhibition. Artists are on hand to answer questions, and it is a rare treat
to see new works in progress in addition to studies and finished pieces. The Artwalk is an
opportunity to purchase work directly from the artist and see what is coming up in the LA art scene.
Artists range from emerging to established, and the colony has welcomed many new residents
in the past few years. Works by SFAC residents have been featured in major art exhibitions,
publications and collections locally, nationally, and internationally.
