The Sarasota Visual Artists Studios (SVAS) group is a collaborative of established and prolific artists each dedicated to an individual and distinctive vision. For the past four years we have been opening our studios to the public on the first Saturday of every month during the local Sarasota season (Dec– Mar. Visitors have been invited to visit the studios, meet the artists, see their newest work and learn about their work processes in their environments. Hot new works and a fascinating workspace filled with interesting things to see have been presented at each artist's studio – paintings, sculptures, photography, architecture models and jewelry have greeted visitors. Good conversation and an abundance of truly exciting visual experiences were the order of the day.. Looking back at the fabulous 2019-2020 studio tour season from today's perspective we are enormously grateful to all the wonderful and enthusiastic visitors and participants that made it so successful and such an exciting adventure for all. We are also deeply grateful for our extended (1 year) exhibition, "The Independent Eye" at the Art Ovation Hotel beautifully curated by Francine Rosenzweig which recently came to a close.
The last Open Studio tour of the 2019-20 season was on a beautiful Saturday, March 7th, 2019 . Due to the pandemic we are not (as of now) planning studio tours this season in order to avoid in person gatherings of groups. However we are here and each of our studios are active workplaces and showplaces. There are always exciting new works and a fascinating workspace filled with interesting things to see at each artist's studio.
