Dozens of Inglewood artists will open their studios to the public the weekend of November 13-14, 2010 from 1:00pm to 6:00pm during the fourth annual Inglewood Open Studios tour. The event, hosted by Inglewood artists and nonprofit Inglewood Cultural Arts (ICA), will allow visitors to personally tour the studios of established and emerging artists working in drawing, painting, sculpture, mixed-media, photography, installation, and performance. In addition to the tour, Inglewood Open Studios also features a group show, which includes work by all participating tour artists, at the gallery within the brand new Beacon Arts Building from Saturday, November 13 through Saturday, November 27, 2010. In addition to providing the gallery space for the Inglewood Open Studios group show, Beacon Arts will also sponsor an opening reception for the exhibit on November 13, 7:00-10:00pm. Gallery hours for the group show are Tuesday to Saturday 1:00pm to 6:00pm. Beacon Arts (http://www.beaconartsbuilding.com / 310-621-5416) is located at 808 N. La Brea Ave., Inglewood, CA 90302.

Inglewood Open Studios artist involvement has more than doubled from 17 artists last year to 38 artists currently. Participants include self-taught artists, art educators, and a significant number of graduates from nearby Otis College of Art and Design.
This year's Inglewood Open Studios is dedicated to the much-beloved, long-time Inglewood artist Dustin Shuler, who died earlier this year. He was well-known internationally for his large-scale, vehicle-based public installations such as "Spindle" and "Pinned Butterfly." Shuler participated in both the 2008 and 2009 Inglewood Open Studios tours and, thanks to his wife Karen Zindler-Shuler, his studio will again be open on the tour this year.
Inglewood Open Studios 2010 is hosted by the artists of Inglewood with the help of ICA, Inglewood Cultural Arts.
Inglewood Cultural Arts (ICA) is a multidisciplinary nonprofit arts organization serving residents of Inglewood and its surrounding communities. ICA's mission is to enhance the quality of life in the community by providing diverse cultural arts programs.www.inglewoodculturalarts.org
