because it's more than just an open studio. In addition to creating a space for community to gather, share work and support each other, we will also be hosting skill-building workshops during each Open Studio +.

+ is ...

A space to foster creativity and encourage experimentation in an atmosphere of exchange, conversation, and support.

A place to encounter fellow creatives and learn about their work and practice.

A chance to find future collaborators or reconnect with old friends.

A studio to work on your own in-progress pieces and be inspired by someone else’s project.

An opportunity to learn new skills and explore different art practices and tools

Most importantly, Open Studio + is FREE to attend and open to all skill levels.
