More than 70 local artists in at least 50 studios will again, for the second weekend in a row, open their studios as part of the Fall Colors Open Studios tour.

The tour features painters, printmakers, photographers, ceramicists, illustrators, jewelers, designers, woodworkers and more. The tour is an opportunity to meet the artists, view new work, and buy original art in a wide range of media & styles.

The free event, open to the public, is a chance to see the artists’ workspace, watch live demonstrations, observe works in progress and learn about an art process from concept to completion. Beyond an art sale, Open Studios is a chance to experience first-hand how, where and why art is created.

The studios will be open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. See http://thecenterforthearts.org/openstudiostour-post/ to download a map or for more information.

Print versions of the map are available at:

The Center for the Arts, Artworks Gallery, ASiF Studios, Briar Patch Co-op, GV & NC Chambers, The Alexander Gallery, SummerThymes, The Artist Workshop, LeeAnnBrook Fine Art.

A gallery is also set up at The Center for the Arts, 314 West Main St. in downtown Grass Valley.

Gallery Hours are Noon-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
