In Bonny Doon, the studio of Ray Gwyn Smith is filled with prints, new landscape paintings and spectacular views of the redwood forest. Stop by Oct. 18-19, from 11am-6pm and savor. Smith’s studio is located at 997 Smith Grade – five miles up Empire Grade, turn left onto Smith Grade and follow the Open Studio signs. Call 831/227-5971 if you get lost.

Sara Friedlander‘s kinetically-inflected images of the New York subway system and glittering architecture plunge the viewer into a wrap-around perspective. Check them out this weekend at Friedlander’s Fairmont Avenue studio. sara.jpg
