Hunter’s Point Artists – Fall Open Studios
Did you know? “The Hunters Point Shipyard Artists (HPSA) are the largest community of artists in the United States, [featuring] more than 250 artists in working studios.”
Located in the former U.S. naval shipyard of San Francisco, HPSA opens its doors to the public just three times a year: Spring Open Studios (April), Fall Open Studios (October) and the Holiday Party and Art Show (December).
Lucky for you, one of those times (yes, you guessed it: Fall Open Studios) is coming up!
As described on the website, Fall Open Studios will feature:
- More than 160 artists’ studios open to the public – Meet the artists (like Nikki Vismara), see where they create their work and buy art directly from them. Come see great works of art: painting, sculpture, printmaking, jewelry, photography, and more.
- STAR auction preview show and silent art auction running all weekend in the Building 101 Auditorium!
- Local food, beverages, and entertainment on the edge of the Bay in the newest arts district in San Francisco. Bring the family and the pooch!
