First Friday/Gallery Walk & BOST Preview Launch" Friday. June 5th, 5-8pm
Open Studios Tour: Saturday, June 6th, 10a-6p and Sunday, June 7th, 10a-4p
Open Studios is a unique, free event where 45 visual artists, in 27 locations open up their doors to the public for the weekend. We invite you to come to our studio spaces and have an up-close and personal experience with our artwork, examine the materials and tools that we use to make it, and see some demonstrations of how raw materials are transformed into art pieces. It's an opportunity to ask questions about what inspires artists to find out how your favorite artworks came to be, and a chance to purchase unique art.
The Summer Visual Arts weekend will begin during Friday's downtown Gallery Walk. Artworks by some of the studio tour artists will be previewed at the Fountain Square Mall atrium, the I Fell Building on 4th St., and other Gallery Walk galleries. Art lovers can have a tasting of what will be displayed at artists' open studios, and pick up their Educational Booklet for the self-guided tour.
BOST continues its mission to reinforce connections among members, its supporters, and partners in our vibrant visual arts community.
