Thank you to our committee, sponsors and community supporters for helping to make North Coast Open Studios possible!

NORTH COAST OPEN STUDIOS is a DreamMaker project of the Ink People Center for the Arts, and is supported by Humboldt County artists, businesses and community members like you. NCOS would not be possible without the generous support of many people.

Thank you to the NCOS steering committee, who help secure participants and sponsorships, talk sense into a very enthusiastic event coordinator, and distribute publications like pros. Thanks to Morse Media for the website hosting and the 101 Things Publication for the use of their wonderful maps, year after year. Thank you to our Guidebook Layout Goddess, Holly Harvey at the North Coast Journal, for our beautiful publication each year.

Thank you to everyone who made the Art Show & Reception possible: Just My Type Letterpress for hosting, Humboldt Cider Company, Cypress Grove Chevre, Beck’s Bakery, and all the wonderful volunteers who hung the show and helped work the event!

Thank you to Natalie Craig for designing our poster, Lynn M. Jones of Just My Type Letterpress foronce again designing our fancy Reception invitation, and James Bettis for promotional help. We couldn’t do it without all of you (nor would we want to)!
