Art at the Source
For the first two weekends in June, Sebastopol Center for the Arts and Art at the Source present this annual, free open studio tour of western Sonoma County. It's a chance to tour the beautiful backroads of West Sonoma County seeking out a variety of fine art and to learn about the artists' methods and inspirations. Follow the yellow signs to experience more than 160 professional and emerging artists, in 102 studios. Maps and artist information are available at www.artatthesource.org.
New this year, art-lovers have the choice of morning and afternoon guided tours of selected Art at the Source Open Studios. Each tour includes a stop at Sebastopol Center for the Arts for a wine-country welcome, with a light lunch from Hip Chick Kitchen and wine-tasting by Harvest Moon Winery. There are four different scenic routes on June 9 and 10 – choose from the dramatic Sonoma Coast, the winding Russian River, or the fields, hills, woods, and vineyards, where working artists await to share their creative vision with you. $60 includes tour, lunch, and wine-tasting (for visitors age 21 and older).

Sebastopol Center for the Arts hosts a preview exhibit, with an original work by each artist, May through June.
