Join us for Art at the Source 2020!

Since 1995, Art at the Source (AATS) has offered Sonoma County artists an opportunity to show and sell their work in the spring open studio event. Each year art collectors visit Art at the Source studios to meet the artists, see their work, and purchase art.


2020 Open Studio Dates: June 6-7 and June 13-14

Applications Open: November 4, 2019

Application Deadline: December 6, 2019


New for 2020!

We are delighted to announce two exciting changes for Art at the Source this year! Our program boundaries will expand to include Petaluma to the south, Healdsburg to the north, and Santa Rosa to the east. Artists in other communities bordering Highway 101 (Cotati, Rohnert Park, Windsor, and unincorporated areas) will also be eligible this year. We have also introduced an Emerging Artist program with enhanced mentoring and limited scholarship opportunities for artists whose work meets our program requirements but who have limited experience with showing their work in an open studio setting.
