Annual Art Swap and Potluck

The annual SVOS Art Swap and Potluck Picnic will be held on Sunday, September 13 from 3:00 pm to 7:30 pm.

This year Silicon Valley Open Studios and the Pacific Art League are working together to sponsor this event.

It's open to the public and you can bring any art, craft (finished or unfinished), or material that you want to sell, swap, trade, or donate.

This is also a potluck picnic, so bring a dish to share. It's a public park, so bring your friends and family and plan to have a fun afternoon with friends and fellow artists.

This is a pretty informal and unstructured event so it's basically BYOE - Bring your own everything.

It's primarily a swap meet, but you can offer to sell things if you want to.

Found objects, pieces from old fences, old bed sheets and other flotsam and jetsam are transformed into stunning works of art by artists who use techniques from both sides of the Atlantic. This year Silicon Valley Open Studios is please to welcome 18 artists along the Pacific Coast who will exhibit their artwork during the third weekend.
