Maturango seeks Open Studio artists

The Maturango Museum is now accepting applications for slots on this year’s Open Studio Tour, scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 20-21.

“The Open Studio Tour is a wonderful way to meet some of our local artists and see the amazing array of talent that we have in our community,” said Coordinator Andrea Pelch. “Artists in Ridgecrest and Inyokern open their studios for the two-day event so that ticketholders can visit and purchase artwork.” The ticket includes a map of locations so that visitors can stop by between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. each day.

“Last year we had 23 participating artists using media including paint, metal, glass, ceramic sculptures and wood.” Applications are available at the museum, or online at

All artists will also have their artwork displayed in an exhibit at the museum, opening Sept. 14 and closing Oct. 28. To learn more call Pelch at 760-375-6900.
