SF OPen Studios Exhibition 


This year, due to COVID-19, the SFOS exhibition will not take place at SOMARTS Cultural Center.  But we hope to resume this aspect of the open studios program in 2021. 

In previous years, the exhibition has featured 400+ works of art in a multitude of mediums, representing SF Open Studios Premier Artists from every neighborhood. We look forward to bringing the exhibition back and bringing artists and art lovers together again in this amazing space when its safe to do so next year.
