Celebrating all things ART in Natomas!

Capital Artists’ Studio Tour (CAST) in Natomas this Weekend

Natomas Artists Marianne Bland and Kerri Warner will have their studios open this weekend (September 8 & 9, 2012  from 10 am – 5 pm) participating in CAST!

The Capital Artists’ Studio Tour  (CAST) is the best way to support local artists and to encourage artistic growth in our community, not to mention have a great time! It is FREE to tour goers and gives our local artists a chance to share their art from the intimate environment of their own studios.

New for 2012 is that the geographical area has expanded in size to include all studios within approximately a 10 mile radius of CCAS from the previous 4 mile radius which was in place last year. New areas include the Arden-Arcade Area, Carmichael, Natomas, Fair Oaks, Citrus Heights, Orangevale, Nimbus, Rio Linda, Freeport and West Sacramento.

Check out the guide on the official CAST website and plan to visit these amazing Natomas artists in their studios.

Marianne Bland and Kerri Warner will also have art on display at the Gallery Project at Celebrate Natomas on September 8th.  The Gallery Project will be located inside the South Natomas Community Center.  Stop by and get a map and addresses for these 2 open studios.
