Hello Summer!

Something new, something old

Last month, we celebrated art with two days of Open Studios. This month we welcome summer, breathing new life into everything. A new piece of artwork will also breathe new life into your space. This month we are bringing back a bit of the summer outdoor market feel, it will be a fun campus-wide event. With our Lofts building open to the public, our Studios building is open as usual, and this month we will have some of our artists setting up tents outside in our parking lot. The Outdoor Art Market portion of this month’s event is perfect for anyone who might not feel ready to wander inside yet.

Our neighbors at Lowell Makes will also be joining us this month. They will have an info tent outside on their patio and will be offering tours.

So join us on June 4th for our June Summer Open Art Studios, from noon until 5 pm.
