Each year we publish between 30,000 and 35,000 of these directories and distribute them free to the public. We hire Circulation Management Inc., a professional distribution company, who places them at more than 500 locations throughout Silicon Valley from South San Francisco to Gilroy as well as cities along the Pacific Coast, They are distributed to libraries, civic centers, colleges, shopping centers, coffee shops, art supply stores, as well as many other merchants.

We design the directory as a year-around resource for artists and art patrons. We’ve learned that visitors to art studios often contact the artists weeks later, so we know the directory is referenced after the event.
