Most cities have some kind of open studio event for artists. In my city (San Jose) we have Silicon Valley Open Studios (SVOS) which is always the first 3 weekends of May. SVOS has been around for 31 years and covers about 39 different cities. The deadline to apply is December 31st. check out their website for more info and an application to participate.

The challenge is to surrender enough control in engineer mode so that lots of interesting species grow that I could never have predicted in advance, but then to be fairly ruthless in gardener mode about pulling the weeds, pruning scraggly branches, and keeping things in reasonably organized beds.
We would like to personally introduce you to our site My Art Resources. We hope you can join us to learn more about the site, our future plans and meet and network with fellow creatives.
We are so excited to share that we have our first interview printed in Content Magazine. My Art Resources will be contributing new interviews and artist profiles for the print version of magazine.
