October! Open Studios in SF, All Hallowed Art…

Laura Buss

The whole month of October weekends, it’s Fall Open Studios time, here in San Francisco. A really fun and wonderful way to see and buy some wonderful art and take some time off from the usual week-end routines. We love taking part in these, you get to see so much affordable art and the artists’ workspaces, with all their drippy messes. Not to mention the fun decor artists are always good for. My partner and I bought our first piece of original art at an open studio, the start of our beloved art collection. The images in this post are all incredible works we found on Artspan, in just a matter of half an hour – now we need to go see them in person! (You can search alphabetically and we just randomly picked letters and came up with these.)
