SAN FRANCISCO - eMusicWire -- In the San Francisco Bay Area you can now access artists' studios on demand! Are you a starting or seasonal art collector? Do you like to support your local artist community? Do you want to experience art on an intimate level and meet with an artist in person? If you answered Yes, then Art Visit is for you.
