25th Anniversary
Monterey County
Artists Studio Tour 2014
DATES: September 27, 28, 11 AM- 5 PM

Please come enjoy the Artists throughout Monterey County who are opening their studios to you and invite you to visit them during the Monterey County Artists Studio Tour.  Studio locations are shown on a Brochure/Map that is available at Pacific Grove Art Center and many other public locations and will be an insert in the Monterey County Weekly the week of Sept. 25, 2014. The locations range from Sand City, Seaside, Monterey, Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, Carmel, Moss Landing and Carmel Valley. You use the maps for a free self-guided tour of the artists’ studios. We have a great selection of artists in a variety of media and this promises to be an exciting, inspirational event, plus you can buy great art directly from the artists.

New this year Artists Equity has reached out to Barbara Moon Batista and her students to add them to the Studio Tour. They are having an exhibit at Sweet Elena’s Bakery in Sand City.

Participating this year is a great line up of fine artists—some nationally and internationally known—painters, sculptors, jewelers, glass blowers, fused glass, photographers, and others. Here is a partial list of some of the artists on the tour: William Giles, Peggy Olsen, Emy Ledbetter, Brian Blood, Cheryl Kampe, Mark Farina, Jody Royee, Deborah Russell, Mary Hill, Kathy Sharpe, Sandy Robinson, and more a total of 63 artists.  You can meet these artists in their own studios, and others sharing studio space together, view their work, enjoy refreshments, talk to them about what they love to do best, and take advantage of being able to buy artwork direct from the artists.

The Tour is organized by Monterey Bay Artists Equity Fund, Inc., a non-profit organization promoting the visual arts, and supported by a grant from the Arts Council of Monterey which is funded by the Monterey County board of Supervisors.
Tour brochure-maps will be in the Coast Weekly, Thursday September 25, 2014 and also available at hotels, galleries, stores, newsstands, and many other public locations throughout Monterey County.
