Bothwell's Downtown Art Studios

Bothwell's Downtown Art Studios The main Bothwell on 8th Street has been in business since 2006, with a mission of providing inexpensive space to all walks of art. In October of 2010, we were given the keys to this abandoned liquor store and turned it into working artist space.

Open to the public 2nd Thursday of each month for Artists at Work Night, from 6-8 pm, with open studios and featured artists or happenings in the studios and downtown. Artists at Work is skipped during October due to ArtWalk, always on the 2nd Saturday of the month. As of June 2, 2017 the wonderful Bothwell Downtown Art Studios closed their doors to the public!! Ten of the fourteen studio artists

Day 8 - Arthur Barinque in front of the old Downtown Arts Studios building - we'd just finished the outside panel murals (with help from Carol Edwards). Both the KFC behind and the studios building are gone - but the City did give us 9 wonderful years there!

Love this one, with Emilee's cool bags hanging in the window...

Hi everyone, who has been so kind to like our Bothwell Downtown Art Studios. We are very fortunate to have been able to secure studio spaces at the Bothwell Arts Center on 2466 8th Street here in Livermore!!! Please stop by and see us.

Good Morning everyone! If you have been wondering about the Bothwell Zombie Crawl, we will be hosting it October 2018. Zombie Crawl is skipping a year due to lack of a downtown presence to have a meeting place for Zombies due to the closing of the Bothwell Downtown Art Studios, thank you for your interest.

So... it is near the end of the Downtown Studios! What an amazing ride!

Who would have known in 2010 what a fabulous artistic creative space this would become.

Here are some words from Linda Ryan . . .

"In October of 2010, we began renovating what had been a derelict, abandoned liquor store and opened our Downtown Art Studios a little over 6 weeks later, with the help of many volunteers. The studios are within walking distance of favorite downtown boutiques, coffee houses and restaurants.

Two-thirds of the space is dedicated to inexpensive open but dedicated working spaces, where artists can work and leave their supplies out, in an environment where they can mingle with other artists and keep that art vibe happening. The other half is set up for semi-private working space."

Our wonderful Joanna Crawshaw Miller has created the most beautiful pin-up women for a very good cause. Please check out the details below and see the first sneak peek!

They're almost here!
I've finished the first in the series, and prints are currently on order. Check out my Etsy shop (etsy.com/shop/RubyPaleFace), and preorder this lovely piece today. Be sure to check back as I will be posting a different piece every few weeks.

My sister-in-law was recently diagnosed with leukemia. She's fighting with everything she's got, but she could use some support right now. @samthepit and her husband @millerkustoms are the makers behind @matchaccessories and their business has touched so many lives. Now it's time to give back... I will be posting some of my reworked pinup drawings on Etsy, and all the proceeds will go to help support their family.
Thank you!

One of our studio mates, Kathleen Hill announces:

Wente Vineyards Estate Winery presents, ”From My Heart” Paintings and Drawings by artist Kathleen Hill in the beautiful Estate Tasting Room, located in the heart of Livermore wine country at 5565 Tesla Road, Livermore, CA 94550 June 1 through June 30, 2016. Meet the artist on Sunday, June 5th from 1-3:00 PM. Kathleen Hill’s first love, like so many young girls, was horses. Drawing them was her way of expressing that love. Her subject matter grew to include anything with fur or feathers. Whether she is doing a commission or a wildlife piece, she considers it her mission to capture the life essence of every animal she paints.
