7-9 – Todos Santos Open Studio Tour
Don’t miss the 11th Annual Todos Santos Open Studio Tour on February 7-9! Each February, a community of artists opens the doors to their studios, inviting you to explore down rambling dirt roads and discover what’s hidden behind their walls. The experience of visiting an artist’s studio is completely different from viewing the artist’s work in the formal setting of a gallery. It’s a chance to connect more intimately with the artist, ask questions, discuss observations, and see his or her tools of the trade. The weekend starts with the Wine & Cheese Sneak Peek on Friday, February 7 at 6:00pm (tickets $150 MXN). Self-guided open studio tours take place on February 8-9 from 10am to 4pm (tickets $300 MXN). The weekend concludes with the sold-out Evening of Music with John Paul Jones, Miguel Ochoa and Friends at La Esquina. www.TodosSantosOpenStudio.org
