Join North Coast Open Studios participating artists for an Artists’ Show and Reception featuring 60+ Open Studios participating artists. The Reception will take place Saturday, May 7th from 6 to 9pm during Arts Alive at the Adorni Center (1011 Waterfront Drive Eureka).
This free event is open to everyone! Take this opportunity to preview artwork, ranging from paintings and photographs to ceramics and textiles, with everything in between.
Visitors will also get a chance to meet Open Studios artists. There will be live music by Gregg Moore and friends, appetizers and a no host wine bar that benefits North Coast Open Studios. And as a special treat for the night: get an early copy of the 2011 North Coast Open Studios guidebook! The guidebook will also be available in the June 3rd issue of the North Coast Journal and in arts friendly venues throughout Humboldt County.
The event is also a fundraiser for North Coast Open Studios. You will be able to purchase tickets for the 2011 NCOS Benefit Drawing, featuring artwork by three fabulous Open Studios artists: painter Julia Bednar, ceramic artist Peggy Loudon and wire artist Elizabeth Berrien. Pieces by all three artists will be raffled off to benefit NCOS, tickets are available for a $5 donation to NCOS.
The show is a sampling of artists who have signed up for North Coast Open Studios 2011. NCOS will take place two weekends in June; The 4th & 5th and 11th & 12th in Humboldt County. About half of this year’s participants contributed a piece for the reception and gallery show.
