Welcome to “Artists of Todos Santos” – the website that aims to consolidate everything available about the Visual Arts in Todos Santos.
In this site, you will find information about the schedule of public art events, the galleries and studios here, workshops and classes, and a variety of resources to help those involved in, or simply interested in the Visual Arts.
Although there are many events throughout the year, and especially during the winter “season”, our signature event is the annual Open Studio tour.
This is a once a year opportunity to visit the art studios in Todos Santos which will take place Saturday and Sunday, February 7th and 8th , 2015.
By popular demand, the Open Studios Tour is now a two day event where visitors will be able to see more art, more studios and spend more time with the artist at each studio. With a map in hand, showing all of the studios, visitors will get a glimpse of what the life of the artist is like. Up the dusty streets of the town, they will be able to see what goes on inside these studios. There will be painters, sculptors, photographers, muralists, plein air painters, encaustic artists, jewelers, printmakers, collage artists, potters, wood turners and we can only imagine what else.
Last year’s 2014 Open Studios Tour with 38 participating artists saw 300 visitors roaming throughout the town in one giant art fest that raised 45,500 pesos for the Children’s Art Programs of The Palapa Society of Todos Santos. This year, all proceeds will benefit this same program.
Why so many artists in a tiny town? Todos Santos, situated on the Tropic of Cancer, has inspired hundreds of artists with many making it their home. Is it the Tropic of Cancer energy, the astounding natural beauty, the magical light, the rural setting and the rustic charm. Come and enjoy the magic.
Ticket price for the Open Studios Tour is 200 pesos for both days. Tickets can be purchased online through http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/785415 after August 1, 2014.
