San Francisco Open Studios 2022 

October 20 - November 13

We're making our way back to normal! ArtSpan's 2022 SF Open Studios includes many of the traditions we love, along with innovations we have discovered in the last two years.

Respondents to our 2021 SFOS Artist Survey indicated that (1) a more structured format is preferred to the self-scheduling model we tried last year, (2) the SFOS Exhibition should align with the time that artist studios are open for visiting, and (3) that ArtSpan should continue to offer an organized virtual event for artists who are interested in participating online.

In response, ArtSpan’s 2022 SF Open Studios program will feature general geographic delineations corresponding with weekend assignments (see map & dates below). This division is intended to guide artists to select the region and weekend that best corresponds to their studio or SFOS event location, while maintaining the flexibility to select the weekend that works best for you. The 2022 SFOS season will run from October 20 through November 13, to coincide with the assigned exhibition dates we have received from SOMArts Cultural Center. 

SFOS Registration opens mid-June, with two levels of participation (Premier & Basic). If you are no longer an active ArtSpan Artist Member, we highly encourage you to renew your membership now to receive time-sensitive communication regarding ArtSpan’s SF Open Studios program. You can check your membership status by logging into your ArtSpan account, or by clicking here.
