9th Annual Carpinteria & Summerland Artists Studio Tour


The annual Carpinteria and Summerland Artists Studio Tour presented by Village Properties took place for the ninth consecutive year on Mother’s Day weekend, May 9th and 10th from 10am – 5pm. This event was FREE and open to the community with 32 artists opening their studios for touring throughout beautiful Carpinteria and Summerland as well as participating in a group show at the Carpinteria Arts Center

Each year, the Artists Studio Tour is a unique opportunity to see and buy work of established artists as well as emerging talent who live in the Summerland and Carpinteria Valley.  Art in a huge variety of media and styles is displayed and sold by artists directly in their homes and studios, and many artists have live demos and works in progress, to see the art being created and get a feel for the process from concept to completion. 

In conjunction with the weekend’s activities there was also an Artists Studio Tour Show and a reception with a great turnout of people that took place on First Friday, a week before the tour.
