"It's my first year participating so it's a big adventure for me," Maria Pazos, a Cuban-American artist (and former Mountain View Voice graphic designer) who uses the medium of alcohol ink, said. "I think the community benefits, especially in our digital world, to have the public see artists at work and what it takes to create art that does not use a computer. I think it's particularly good for kids to see a real studio, see the work. It's very educational."
Downtown Palo Alto's Pacific Art League (668 Ramona St.) will host three SVOS artists: Stephanie Han, watercolorist Dasha Jakobson, who will also exhibit in Menlo Park and Los Gatos, and photographer Michael Marlow, whose artist statement cheekily boasts, "I've never won any prizes and my work has never been displayed anywhere else in the past."
Other local organizations participating in SVOS include Abilities United, The Cubberley Artist Studio Program (CASP), Gallery House and many others, including studios in Menlo Park, Redwood City, Stanford, Los Altos and Los Altos Hills.
