One of the most interesting aspects of art is experiencing it in person and talking to the artists about their work and what inspires them. East Bay Open Studios will once again be offering these in-person opportunities, featuring five Lamorinda artists - Allison Skidgel (Orinda), Lana Fly (Moraga), Carol Brent Levin (Lafayette), Jorge Spiropulo (Moraga) and Jennifer Perlmutter (Lafayette)- as part of its 680 Corridor Artists Weekend 2, Region 2 physical event from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. June 12-13.
Skidgel, who creates paintings and mixed media, says her drawings begin a creation journey that goes from paper to canvas. "The natural world is my muse," she says.
Brent Levin's printmaking and photography is described as often proactive, "challenging us to ponder humanity's role in our evolving ecosystem." Lana Fly's work is an instinctive natural expression of spirituality and primordiality. And Spiropulo, who works with oils and watercolor, loves painting with bold colors "while offering my interpretation of people and trees."
Jennifer Perlmutter Gallery in Lafayette is a sponsor location, which will have guidebooks available. Current state and county restrictions and regulations regarding COVID-19 will apply. For a map, and detailed information about locations, visit
