Description of the upcoming Sac Open Studios 2018 – an annual event held over two weekends featuring hundreds of Sacramento area artists.
I look forward every year to Sac Open Studios – and this year (the 13th Annual) is no exception. Sac Open Studios 2018 will take place the weekends of September 8-9 and September 15-16 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
What is Sac Open Studios? It is a free, self-guided tour enabling you to go see your favorite local artists and to discover new ones.

The 2018 60+ page Sac Open Studios guide lists the artists and their medium (sculpture, ceramics, painting, metal, etc.), including a sample of their work. The guide also includes maps showing the locations of the various studios. I picked up my guide at my local grocery store (see Sac Open Studios 2018 cover above).
