35 of the Mendonoma Coast’s
Enjoy the most beautiful scenery that the northern California coast has to offer while visiting the studios of the area’s most unique and talented artists.
The 2019 Studio Discovery Tour takes place on Labor Day weekend (August 31 – September 2) and the weekend before (August 24 – 25) ~ Studios open 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day.
This free, self-guided tour along breathtakingly scenic coastal Highway 1, from Point Arena to The Sea Ranch, is the perfect way to spend a leisurely day or an entire weekend. The artists you meet along the way are happy to demonstrate the making of their art and share their unique vision.
Our free, full-color catalog will help you make the most of your tour. It contains a description of each artist, along with a detailed map and directions to each studio. While on the road, look for the bright yellow signs to help guide you along the way. The catalog is a must when visiting artists on The Sea Ranch. Directional signs are not allowed along that section of Highway 1.
You can begin your adventure by stopping at the Discovery Gallery, 39140 So. Hwy 1, Gualala, CA, located in the Seacliff Center, lower level, on the west side of Hwy 1, to preview the work of Studio Tour artists and to pick up catalogs with maps.
Catalogs will also be available at the Gualala Arts Center, the Dolphin Gallery, the Mendocino Art Center, Elk Artists Collective, Coast Highway Artists’ Collective and various local galleries and businesses along the way.
