Monterey County Artists Open Studio Tour

"Arts Habitat connects and collaborates with artists and arts organizations in Monterey County to foster a dynamic, growing community, while leading the way to a thriving center for the arts at East Garrison.”

The Monterey County Artists Open Studio Tour is an annual, self-guided tour of artist studios and exhibition spaces across the county, during the last weekend in September and the first weekend in October. In 2016, the tour will take place in Coastal locations on September 24 & 25, and in  Salinas Valley locations on October 1 & 2. Artists may choose to participate on both weekends.  Also, there will be two, seven week exhibitions of artwork by participants.  The exhibit for Coastal artists will be at the Pacific Grove Art Center (PGAC) and for Valley artists at a location to be determined.  Opening Galas will be held at the PGAC on September 23 and at the Salinas exhibition site on September 30.
