I am pleased to invite you to the Colony of Coastside Artists annual Open Studios!
CoCa Open Studios is being held this Weekend –November 21- 22 from 10am to 5pm. This year there are over 40 local artists participating in 23 different locations from Half Moon Bay to Montara. For a complete list of all the studio locations and their creative offerings please go to the CoCa website at www.colonyofcoastsideartists.com. You can print up a map to all the locations from the website or pick up a brochure at any studio.
The best thing about Open Studios is the chance to talk directly to the artists about their work. You have the opportunity to find out what goes into creating any particular work of art, the meaning of the piece or a little about the creative process.
Open Studios if free to anyone and everyone that wants to come. There is no entry fee.
Open Studios is a great way to shop for the Holidays! Coca open studios offers a huge variety of unique items and original art not to be found elsewhere.
Each studio will also be offering a variety of refreshments so you can nibble while you shop and talk to the artists.
New this year at the Coca Open Studios is the chance to win one of more than $1,800 in original art! All you need to do is to pick up a passport at any studio location. Get your passport stamped at 8 different studios and your name will be entered into our prize drawing.
On a personal note I will be offering my work with 4 other wonderful artists at 238 Palma street in El Granada. Here are the artists and their offerings:
Patt Sheldon: fiber art and jewelry

Open Studios is like a mini vacation. Come to the beautiful California coast, shop, eat, visit the sights and forget the daily grind. You don’t even need a map-just follow the yellow signs!
