Description

Join us for an evening of art, wine, and stimulating discussion at ArtSpan's SF Open Studios Exhibition. You'll have time to browse the gallery, featuring over 400 works of art by local artists, and get a taste of what's on view during SF Open Studios (Oct 12 - Nov 3). Local art luminaries will discuss how they each selected their AMPLIFY: Juror's Choice Award-winning artworks. You'll also hear from winning artists about their inspiration sources and process.
