Introducing Open Studios Napa Valley

Open Studios LogoIf you’re an avid art collector or just curious about art, I have the details about Open Studios Napa Valley, a program made just for you. Each year 60 to 75 artists participate by sharing their artwork with visitors from all over the United States. Held over two weekends in September, this is an incredible opportunity to peer into the creative spaces of Napa Valley, meet the artists, watch demonstrations and buy local art right from the source.

  • Saturday and Sunday, September 17, 18– Open Studios Napa Valley’s initial weekend.  Visit 62 local artists in 33 locations.  All studios open both days from 10am until 5pm.
  • Saturday and Sunday, September 24, 25– The 2016 Open Studios Napa Valley’s concluding weekend.  Come see this year’s artists and the space where they work.  All studios open from 10am until 5pm both days.

The participating artists are part of the Art Association Napa Valley, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that supports artists through scholarships, networks, events, and promotions within the Napa Valley and beyond. This is just one example of the programs, classes, seminars, shows and special gatherings the Art Center hosts throughout the year. Some of Napa’s most talented artists lend their expertise to the association’s ongoing classes and special workshops through the month. The Art Association Napa Valley contributes a portion of revenues from Open Studios Napa Valley to local High School and Junior College scholarships.

The Open Studios Napa Valley program exists today because the artists believe in the importance and value of opening their studios to visitors and sharing a unique artistic experience. Although the Open Studio venues are only open September 17, 18, 24 and 25, many of the participating artists also show their work at Art Gallery Napa Valley, located at 1307 First Street in downtown Napa.
