Local painters, illustrators, ceramicists, sculptors, jewelry-makers and other creative types will expose themselves artistically Saturday, Oct. 12 and Sunday, Oct. 13 when they open up their work spaces to the public for the 2013 Long Beach Open Studio Tour. Forty artists in 31 different locations will participate in the two-day event, which spans five Long Beach neighborhoods: Belmont Shore, Wrigley, California Heights, Bixby Knolls and the El Dorado Park area.
The self-guided tour will be part of Long Beach Arts Month and National Arts and Humanities Month.
Each week, from now until the weekend of the event, the Signal Tribune will profile a different artist from the tour.
