Benicia Artists Open Studios Artist Application
This year Benicia Artists Open Studios will take place on Saturday & Sunday, May 6 & 7 from 10 – 5pm. In honor of our 30th year, we have made some changes to Benicia Artists Open Studios. Instead of the Open Studios Preview in the gallery we will publish an Open Studios booklet, which will contain artwork images from participating artists, studio locations, way finding and Open Studios maps.
In the gallery Arts Benicia will be hosting Mike Kendall’s Retrospective from April 8 through May 7. Many of you know him but for those who don’t, Mike Kendall is a well-known Benicia artist who has lived and worked in the Benicia Arsenal for over 25 years. He was the very first exhibitor in the Arts Benicia gallery in 1993. Besides being an incredibly active artist, he is a very generous member of the Benicia art community, always opening his studio space to share with multiple artists during Open Studios. This exhibition will be a unique opportunity to see and interact with Mike’s exceptional work and for Arts Benicia to honor him in this, our 30th year.
