Six award-winning Peninsula artists — Alice Weil, Jean Prophet, Julia Munger Seelos, Lynn Montoya, Kim Holl and Frances Freyberg — will exhibit paintings, jewelry, pottery, textiles and fine art photography in Menlo Park during the 2013 Silicon Valley Open Studios. The free event will take place the weekend of May 4-5, from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm at a group site at 856 Partridge Avenue in Menlo Park. Visitors are encouraged to come speak with the artists in person and see their latest works, all in one convenient location.
This event is part of the 27th annual Silicon Valley Open Studios, where hundreds of local artists open their studios to the public during the first three weekends in May. The event is open to the general public, art enthusiasts, art collectors and investors, and art students. Open Studios allow visitors to discover new artistic talent or get up close and personal with favorite artists.
The artists participating in the Menlo Park group show will be donating select artwork to a raffle to benefit local nonprofit Mission Hospice & Home Care. In addition, photographer Frances Freyberg will be donating all profits from her weekend’s sales to Mission Hospice. Founded in 1979, Mission Hospice provides end-of-life care to patients and families in the San Mateo County area. The nonprofit is committed to serving all patients — regardless of their ability to pay — and relies on donations from the community to support its programs.
