In-person Open Studios were cancelled for 2020 due to COVID-19. In its place, we have prepared a Virtual Exhibit and Art Sale Benefitting Second Harvest of Silicon Valley, which will run between October 15 and November 30. Registration for this is closed but please take a look at the Second Harvest of Silicon Valley Benefit Art Sale.
Come back in December or January for information about participating in next year's event(s).
Silicon Valley Open Studios is an event that encourages a close personal relationship between artists and art enthusiasts.
Our mission is to educate artists about the business of art, help promote their art business, provide guidance for emerging artists, and to create an easy, educational, and enjoyable art-buying experience for the art enthusiast.
If you are new to Silicon Valley Open Studios and do nothing else, attending SVOS University is the most important thing you can do to help ensure your success during this event. Silicon Valley Open Studios is pleased to announce an expanded schedule of exciting seminars to help you build your art career.
SVOS University is a series of seminars to help you get the most out of your participation in Silicon Valley Open Studios. This is presented by a group of veteran artists and marketing professionals who have developed successful techniques for promoting and selling their art.
