Come Tour East Bay Open Studios, June 6-7 and 13-14, 2015 — Visit Our Studio Building!

East Bay Open Studios offers a rare opportunity for arts fans of all ages to meet local artists, explore new neighborhoods and discover new art of many disciplines and genres. Over 400 hundred artists will open their studios to art adventurers across the East Bay. At many studios, the artists serve beverages and delicious snacks, such as wine, juice, bottled water, and artisan cheeses.

“East Bay Open Studios lets people dig deep to find remarkable and unexpected creative spaces,” says Margo Dunlap, Executive Director of Pro Arts, the non-profit organization that has produced East Bay Open Studios for four decades. “You can visit large industrial studio complexes and live-work spaces that are bursting with activity. Or you can find studio gems in people’s homes: a darkroom under a staircase, print room in a garage, or living room dedicated to drafting. The amazing thing about this event is every Open Studios adventure will be different.”

View art, mix with Open Studios artists, and enjoy happy hour, $2 for beer

    Our Creative Sage™ studio/office building, the Kawneer Building (also known as the Sawtooth Building, due to the jagged sawtooth shape of its roof), located in West Berkeley, is a central point in the East Bay Open Studios event. There are a number of prominent artists of all genres working there, including visual/fine artists, writers, musicians, composers, filmmakers, sound designers, photographers, web designers, graphic artists, illustrators, theatre artists, dancers, ceramicists, woodworkers, jewelers, and more. There are also a number of interesting, arts-related small businesses and nonprofits headquartered in our historic Berkeley, California landmark.

    In fact, the entire neighborhood of West Berkeley, bordering on Emeryville, is an intriguing one, full of artist studios, cafes, unusual shops, tech and biotech companies, creative businesses, and the historic Fantasy Studios, part of what was formerly known as the Saul Zaentz Film Center, now Zaentz Media Center (photo above). It’s also a short drive from West Berkeley to Pixar and other Emeryville landmarks.
