Santa Barbara Studio Artists to Open Their Doors for Studio Tour

Santa Barbara’s most successful, award-winning visual artists will open their studio doors to the public for the Santa Barbara Studio Artists annual tour over Labor Day weekend, Aug. 30-31, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Offering a veritable treasure trove of works by top U.S. artists based in the Santa Barbara area, the SBSA Open Studio Tour offers collectors and art enthusiasts an insider’s view into the intimate surroundings of artists studios.

This year’s event will benefit The Arts Fund of Santa Barbara, a nonprofit organization supporting artists and arts programming in Santa Barbara County.

There will be an Opening Gala Exhibition from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Aug. 29 at The Arts Fund Santa Barbara Gallery, 205 Santa Barbara St.

The Gala Exhibition will feature one piece of artwork from each participating studio artist so ticketholders can kick off the weekend and decide which studios they want to visit. The artists will be in attendance at the gala.

For tickets, maps and more information, call 805.899.8854 or visit

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
