Open Studios, with a hint of an Outdoor Art Market
Start your holiday weekend with us.
September brings new energy into artists’ work routines. We squeeze in the last bits of summer sunlight, and incorporate what the season has taught us into our works. Capturing the process of making art is something that is becoming a requirement, but it does not compare to witnessing the magic of an artist creating in person. By walking our halls you get to watch some of our artists working in their open studios and connect with them.
Please join us and experience a little bit of magic this Saturday September 3rd from noon until 5 pm – we look forward to seeing you!
If you plan to join us, we do not require guests to wear masks/face coverings while inside Western Avenue, but we do recommend bringing one in case a specific studio or business requires it within their space.
Immersive Installation and Gallery Shows
This month features Spin: Installation Process and Methodology an exhibition by Karen Christians showing in the Loading Dock Gallery . View artifacts and look behind the scenes of creating jewelry castings from spin casting molds on our 5th floor mini gallery, near studio 597.
