Guidelines and Policies
All artists must adhere to deadlines for registration and material requests for catalog and exhibits.
There is a $125.00 fee to participate ($99.00 for early bird registration). The entire fee goes to implementing and marketing the Capital Artists’ Studio Tour and to support its tactical programs run by the Center for Contemporary Art, Sacramento (CCAS). The fee is non-refundable and required for participation.
A limited number of hardship scholarships are available for artists who may need assistance. Please contact the Director at the Center for Contemporary Art, Sacramento to discuss your needs. All cases will be discussed and decided on a per-case basis. All decisions are final.
All studios must remain open and the artist must be present during the two days your studio is scheduled to be open. If you opt to open during the additional evening hours, you must remain open the entire shift, as scheduled.
Basic standards of cleanliness and safety must be observed. Be sure to clearly mark steps and other areas which could present safety concerns. Please recognize some visitors have allergies or fear of pets.
Post sufficient signage to assist visitors. Signs should be prominently and prolifically displayed.
