Vallejo Artists Open Studios - 2011

This weekend, November 12-13, from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm both days, many of the awesome and talented artists in Vallejo will be opening their studios, or, as in my case, hitching up with other artists in their studios, to dazzle the public with their incredible art! This event will be amazing, interesting, colorful, mind-boggling, stunning, exciting, and many other things, to everyone who attends. Perhaps the most important thing it will be is Eye-Opening. Sadly, there are many folks in the Bay Area, and, indeed, in Vallejo itself, who are totally unaware of the wealth of talent that exists in their midst. Over 50 artists will be displaying their work in this weekend-long parade of flair and genius!

Where to begin??? It's best to first visit the McCree-Goudeau Gallery, 930 Marin Street at Florida, and pick up one of the colorful calendars, which contains a list of artists, their media, a picture of their work, and a map, to enable you to proceed on your self-guided tour.

Last Saturday, there was a preview reception at the Gallery, and here are pictures of some of the art which was on display... listed alphabetically by artist.
