Studios on the Streets in Martinez

Mar 30, 2015 08:54AM ● By Jennifer Neys
The Martinez Chamber of Commerce will be producing Studios on the Streets. It will be unique from other events in the area as it will encompass not only the works of visual artists but will have working visual artists. All visual artists showing their work will be involved in their craft of painting, sketching, etc. 
In addition, there will be mimes, music and vocalists interspersed amongst the visual artists. Furthermore, there will be no tents on the streets but rather umbrellas for artists, thereby allowing foot traffic to flow more easily in and out of businesses. Visual artists’ works will be displayed in a business adjacent to where the artist is working. 

The date is May 9, 2015, and will be held in lieu of Open Studios which has been produced in the past by the Martinez Arts Association on the first weekend of May. The hours for the event are from noon to 6pm and will be located along the 500-900 blocks of Main Street and vicinity in Martinez.
