The 8th Annual Carpinteria and Summerland Artists Studio Tour generously presented by Village Properties takes place on Mother’s Day weekend, the 10th and 11th of May from 10am – 5pm. This event is FREE and open to the community. A map and Art Studio Directory will be available both online at www.artscarp.org and from the Carpinteria Arts Center and will guide you through some of the diverse fine artists studios of Carpinteria & Summerland.
The Artists Studio Tour is a unique opportunity to view 35 participating local artist studios, some of whom have shown in well-known galleries internationally and in the U.S. from Los Angeles to New York. It is also a chance to see and buy work of established artists as well as budding emerging talent who live in the beautiful Summerland and Carpinteria Valley. Some of this year’s highlights include new works by well-known local artist, Cayetana (Tani) Conrad, daughter of famed author, Barnaby Conrad. Tani is well known for her paintings of figures and landscapes distinctly featuring California colors and light. Her Toro Canyon studio has been featured in a number of magazines and will be open both Saturday and Sunday of the tour.
Originally a native of Carpinteria and just returning back to the area from a career in Santa Monica where she was working as an award-winning network TV producer, Danielle Methmann will be showcasing her latest work at Café Luna. Danielle’s photographs exude laid back So Cal lifestyle and beautifully capture the inspiration she gets from her surrounding environments. Danielle’s photographs will be on display at Café Luna both Saturday and Sunday.
Open Sunday only studio tour goers seeking an adventurous art studio visit are urged to visit local painter, Thomas Mace’s art studio. Perched atop Shepherds Mesa, Tom built the studio that is his wood shop, idea factory and home for his current projects. Situated in the mountains above Carpinteria, Thomas’ studio is the converted lathe house and a must see.
For a full list of participating artists please visit Carpinteria Arts Center website at www.artscarp.org or on Facebook @CarpinteriaArtistsStudioTour. This weekend long opportunity to tour and visit local artist studios is FREE and open to the public.

This month marks the 17th anniversary of Riskin Associates parent company, Village Properties! Co-founded by agents Renee Grubb and Ed Edick, the company has grown to over 150 agents across three offices, Montecito, Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez. Village Properties is proudly affiliated with Christie's International Real Estate and Luxury Portfolio, which extends the outreach of marketing efforts for the area's most distinctive properties and provides an elaborate network of agents who represent affluent buyers all over the world. To celebrate the incredible accomplishments and strides Village Properties has made in the industry, a fantastic soiree at Santa Barbara's elegant Canary Hotel was thrown. Agents and staff were invited to enjoy the beautiful Spring evening atop the Canary's beautiful rooftop terrace overlooking the sea and mountains while honoring their efforts over the past 17 years. After an incredibly successful year in 2012 and an energetic first few months of 2013, the Riskin Associates team was excited to attend and mingle with fellow agents and staff!
