Silicon Valley Open Studios

Connecting artists to art enthusiasts

Special thanks to our sponsors who are listed in the banner and throughout the website.

Open Studios has been CANCELLED for 2020 due to COVID-19.

SVOS is a long-standing tradition for the Bay Area arts community, and this is the first time in our 34 years of operation that we have not been able to proceed. We worked hard to stay open to support the artists and the art-loving community. Unfortunately, the trend in Covid cases and infection rates is not in our favor. As State and County health authorities have begun to tighten again, we decided that cancelling this year’s Open Studios was the most sensible thing to do for our artists and our visitors.

We are grateful for the many expressions of support we have received during this difficult time. We welcome donations and look forward to restarting physical exhibits when conditions permit. Stay safe and healthy. Let’s hope for a better 2021.

Note for visitors: Artists may plan to participate in virtual events or will arrange showings by appointment. Please check the online directory for individual artist information.

Artists: Please check for additional information on the Info for Artists page.

All: We now have a Donate button on our homepage - please let folks know!
