For those of you who don't already know, this weekend (Oct. 22-23) is the 2nd and final weekend of the "open studios/galleries" sponsored by the Arts Council of Sonoma County. You can visit and talk with nearly 150 artists, photographers and craftspeople around the county, and see (and buy) their fabulous creations in their own studios and workshops. ARTrails is free to visitors. You can check the website at: www.artrails.org to learn more, and free catalogs/maps are available at the Arts Council's office: 529 5th St. in Santa Rosa. Their phone is: (707) 579-2787. You can also pick up a copy of the catalog at many local shops. This is an art lover's dream--and also a great excuse for just driving around and enjoying the beautiful Fall scenery in Sonoma County!
