To help you plan your visit, here are a few highlights:

  • Open Studios  artist studios will be featuring lots of Spring inspired art – you can browse, shop and meet all different types of artists like fiber and glass artists, jewelers, metal workers, painters, photographers, potters, printers, wood workers, sculptors, and more!
  • Spring Art Thing – during Open Studios, you have a chance to win one of three Western Avenue gift certificates to spend at participating studios and lofts. Just pick up a pink postcard as you enter any of our buildings, visit 10, 20, or 30 or more participating studios and lofts to collect stickers and deposit your postcard (with your contact information) in a designated box as you leave. A drawing will be held on the day of the event. You need not be present to win. Winners will be contacted.
