A Call for Docentry . . .

We are just about ready for our Ninth Annual "Studio Nocturne" event (part of  SF Open Studios) held again at Fort Mason Center, Oct 22-23, 2011.
Did you know that we are looking for docents to help out (in 2 hour shifts, both days)? It's a fun, well attended social event and we need your help to keep things running smoothly and in a friendly, sociable manner.
We are trying to get people to commit to these 2 hour shifts:
11am - 1pm / 
1 - 3pm / 2 - 4pm  or  4 - 6pm
Just let us know if you want to cover any of these, either day. Contact us directly at studio [at] thenocturnes [dot] com if you can free up some time this weekend,

"Studio Nocturne"

"Fortunately, art is a community effort - a small but select community living in a spiritualized world, endeavoring to interpret the wars and the solitudes of the flesh."(Allen Ginsberg)

Once again "Studio Nocturne" returns to Fort Mason Center. The Nocturnes will be hosting 10 photographers at Fort Mason, October 22 and 23. in Landmark Building ‘D,’ Ground Level. This is our ninth "Studio Nocturne" exhibit at Fort Mason. While this group of photographers can usually be found practicing their art under the full moon or city lights, they will again brave the daylight to show their work as part of San Francisco Open Studios 2011.
"Studio Nocturne" is always one of the larger groups of artists showing their work at Fort Mason, but there is plenty of other art to be seen there during San Francisco Open Studios as well. As in years past, visitors to "Studio Nocturne" will have an opportunity to purchase fine art photographs at studio prices. Visit to see the roster of artists for this year’s event.
Why not come on out and have a look?
