Open Studios is set up in such a way to allow art lovers to pour through dozens of artworks; from large scale painting and sculpture to small intimate studies that the artists create as part of their practice. Open Studios is an artist-lead event, and they don’t take any percentage from art sales.

      Open Studios started in 2013 as a small gathering with a few studios of artist friends in Altadena and Pasadena. The program has since expanded into a two day experience twice a year. Learn more about the history of Open Studios on their website.
