Open Studios Workshop & Deadline

Calling All Humboldt County Artists: The deadline to apply for the 2011 North Coast Open Studios is Wednesday, March 16th! Don't miss your chance to participate in this creative showcase for local artists.

Not sure if participation in NCOS is right for you? Have you thought about participating, but decided not to because… Your studio is in a small corner of your kitchen (or bedroom or living room)? Or because you don’t have a business license or reseller’s number? Or you wouldn't know where to begin to actually PRESENT and SELL your work? Or maybe it did not occur to you that people actually buy art in Humboldt County?

Here’s your chance to get answers to these questions and to find out whether or not NCOS is right for you. This could be the first step in turning your passion into a business enterprise. NCOS participating artist and Artist Marketing Coach Extraordinaire Victoria Ryan will be facilitating a workshop on Thursday, March 17th at 6:30 pm at the Ink People office (517 Third Street, Suite 36, Eureka). She will walk prospective participating artists through everything from the essential participation issues to personal accounts from successful local artists.

You will have the chance to find out what is required to participate in NCOS, get tips and suggestions on how to arrange your home studio to optimize your space for public viewing, learn how NCOS can help you market your art, and much more… NCOS Coordinator Taffy Stockton will also be on hand to answer questions.

As an added bonus, this will be your last chance to turn in an application to participate in NCOS! The registration deadline is Wednesday, March 16th, but applications will be available at the workshop, and participants can apply there!

For more information, contact Taffy Stockton, NCOS Coordinator by email at, or by calling (707) 834-6460. Find more information on our website at,
