Studio Discovery Tour

Anne Kessler, Water Lilies Gualala Arts and North Coast Artists' Guild present an exhibit preview of the 19th Annual Studio Discovery Tour from the reception June 3 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. through June 26, 2011. Forty-two artists will be displaying their work in the Burnett Gallery at Gualala Arts Center.

Diane Cochran, Girl with a Pearl The Studio Discovery Tour will be Labor Day weekend, September 3-5 and September 10-11. Come explore artists' studios in coastal northern Sonoma and southern Mendocino Counties on a free self-guided adventure. Meet painters who work in oils, pastels and acrylics, potters, print makers, carvers, woodworkers, fiber artists, photographers, jewelers and mixed media artists who call the northern California coast home.

Be inspired, as the artists are, by the rugged beauty of unspoiled nature. Each artist offers a unique look at what the creative process means to him or her. Come stay for the weekend, pack a picnic lunch, or visit our local restaurants and wineries while enjoying this delightful experience.

A tour brochure with photographs of each artist's work and a detailed self-guided map of how to find the various studios is available by emailing tour director Marianne Baxter at to place your name on the Studio Tour mailing list or call 707-785-9513.
