If you want to know about artists, take a peek into their workspaces. You can learn a lot from what covers the spaces — is it messy with open bottles of acrylics or neat and organized? For some, it’s where they draw inspiration — from tattered paper pinned on a busy cork board to piles of beads in colors that, strangely, work well together and create their own patterns. Some artists spend a few hours in their studios, while others literally live and sleep in them.
For the fourth year, locals have an opportunity to view the studios where Lodi and Stockton-area artists spend so much of their time. This weekend’s LOST — Lodi Open Studios Tour — are featuring 26 artists are 10 Lodi locations. Here is a look at several artists who will have their work, artistic processes and studios on display.
