ArtSpan Posters are going up! Contest Kick Off!

OpenStudios@TBay3_9-3-14  OpenStudios@TBay_9-3-14

They are going up!  ArtSpan – The organization that makes Open Studios happen in San Francisco every Fall, picked my painting ‘Young Family Walking Through It All’ to be the cover of the SF Open Studios Guide Book as well as their Open Studios promotional materials this year.  A few weeks ago I was informed that  this meant that my painting would be featured on transit kiosks, bus ads, bus stop posters, and muni train ads!  I am thrilled and honored to be part of that.  I hope that it helps get people excited about meeting artists and checking out Open Studios for the first time.  And to keep the buzz going I have an idea….

1. If you see one of the SF Open Studios ads around town….take a selfie in front of the poster.

2. Tag your selfie on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with the hashtag of #coffyartspan

3. Once you have done steps 1 and 2 stop by my Open Studio on October 25th and 26th and receive 5% off your purchases and a special gift for participating.

4. You can also post the pic to my facebook page or send me an email at

I can’t wait to see all your shining faces in front of these cool ads.  Thanks for playing along.  Take care.
