Come experience The Creative Soul of Lowell! 

This Saturday kicks off Outdoor Art Market season at Western Avenue | Studios & Lofts.

The weather is finally heating up and the school year is winding down–which means it’s time to fill your weekends with art, fun, food, and shopping!  Our Outdoor Art Markets began in 2020 as a creative response to the pandemic and have become a popular annual event. This Saturday from 12-5pm Western Avenue artists will bring their studios outdoors to create a marketplace of artists, adding on to our regular Open Studios food trucks, cafe offerings, multiple galleries with new shows, and Open Lofts and Studios in both of our buildings. This is the perfect opportunity to find artful gifts for Father’s day or graduations, or to simply wander and be inspired by our creative soul!

Outdoor Art Markets will be happening during regular Open Studios on June 3, July 1,  August 5, and September 2 this year. Here’s a list of some of our artists who will be outside for these events so you don’t miss out!
