The artists of Silicon Valley Open Studios have given the public an up-close look at the creative process for more than 30 years. Now they’ve gone online.
This month, in advance of the holiday season, they are hosting a virtual sale with a bonus — not only do the artists benefit during a year when all in-person shows were canceled, but a major South Bay/Peninsula charity that fights hunger will also.
More than 130 artists — a combination of established and emerging talent — will display and offer for sale 600 works of art. Now through Nov. 30, you can browse through the online gallery at SVOS.org where artists are arranged in categories by their medium, including ceramics, digital art, furniture, glass, jewelry, painting, printmaking, sculpture and watercolor.

Artists have pledged to donate 15 percent or more of their proceeds to Second Harvest of Silicon Valley, which distributes food to every neighborhood in the valley.
“SVOS is feeding our need for, and love of, art while helping to nourish our community,” Steve Toll, the executive director of Silicon Valley Open Studios, said in announcing the event.
