Studio Time

If you’ve lived in the Bay Area for even a little while, you’ve heard whispers about this magical spot just across the Golden Gate Bridge. Headlands Center for the Arts is a former military compound where an acclaimed roster of artists and writers and dancers frolic freely through the grassy hills and then return to their studios in converted barracks to create exciting contemporary work. Today this arts center flings wide its doors for the Fall 2011 Open House. Fuel up in the Mess Hall with fresh-cooked organic cuisine — you’ll need the energy to explore the rabbit warren of studios that hide in the center’s buildings. The current crop of artists in residence includes exciting local talent Suzanne Husky, she of the exquisitely crafted “sleeper cells” recently on display at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. There’s also Chris Ritson and his videos featuring plant life, crystals he has grown himself, and untold other natural phenomena. Interact with S.F. sculptor Andy Vogt’s work as he encourages visitors to bend light and space, or find experimental architect Liam Young, visiting from the U.K., to see what he’s devised. You’ll want to know what it takes to move into a studio yourself.
