You are invited to ARTISTS AT WORK!
Visit 40+ ICB artists as they work in their studios, mess and all! Please come see us in action -- wildly creating -- that’s what we do. The ICB building in Sausalito is home to over 140 artists who work in various mediums including painting, photography, sculpture, jewelry, weaving and more. We hope you’ll join us!
Submissions are open to anyone--especially those who have asked how they can thank Mr K for his sticker work. It needs to be a portrait of him (in any discipline), with no size requirements. Drop off the morning of March 8, or anytime before, in Studio 126. Tres Nomad will host the Gallery 111 opening party March 8, 5-9pm, with a cheeseboard and wine, and then keep the gallery open for the weekend.
For the 50th anniversary of our Winter Open Studios, the ICB Arists will open their studios to talk about the process of creating, offer artist demos and invite you to view their studios and art. Food will be available on site.
