Join our Yahoo Groups to help organize your own group. There is no cost to join the Yahoo SVOS Group for Artists and you are not obligated to register for Silicon Valley Open Studios. Click on the Purple button at the left to join. You need to have a Yahoo account to use this. Once in the group, you can post a message for everyone about what kind of artist you are looking for and how to contact you. You can also use this to post questions about Silicon Valley Open Studios.
If you're an artist looking for a group, then post a short description about yourself and the type of artwork you do. If you have a geographic preference, mention that also.
If you're a single artist and haven't found a site, SVOS can assign you to a site or introduce you to an artist who is hosting others. But register early as these sites fill up very quickly. Send your request via e-mail to registration at svos.org and tell us a little bit about your art.
If you would like to host other artists at your site, SVOS can assign other artists looking for a place. Send us an e-mail to registration at svos.org and describe a little bit about your site, how many artists you want, and what kind of artwork you're looking for if you have a preference. We will introduce you to artists and let you make the final invitation.
If you are new to Silicon Valley Open Studios and do nothing else, attending SVOS University is the most important thing you can do to help ensure your success during this event. Silicon Valley Open Studios is pleased to announce an expanded schedule of exciting seminars to help you build your art career.
SVOS University is a series of seminars to help you get the most out of your participation in Silicon Valley Open Studios. This is presented by a group of veteran artists and marketing professionals who have developed successful techniques for promoting and selling their art.
If you are participating in SVOS for the first time, or if you'd like to learn more about how other artists promote themselves, SVOS University is an excellent place to learn how to optimize your open studio experience.
Some of the sessions require a $20 cover charge at the door but others after January 2015 are free to artists who are registered for Silicon Valley Open Studios 2015.
