WHAT IT'S ABOUT...

The Sarasota Visual Artists Studios Open Studio Tour Series

 The Sarasota Visual Artists Studios (SVAS) group is a collaborative of established and prolific artists each dedicated to an individual and distinctive vision. They will be opening their studios to the public on the first Saturday of every month during the local Sarasota season (Dec– Mar). Visitors are invited to visit the studios, meet the artists, see their newest work and learn about their work processes in their environments. There are always hot new works and a fascinating workspace filled with interesting things to see at each artist's studio – paintings, sculptures, photography, architecture models and jewelry - there's a lot to see! You may use the multiple upcoming dates to avail yourself of each unique studio experience. Come hang out, look, talk, absorb and enjoy. Good conversation and an abundance of truly exciting visual experiences await.
