City Wide Open Studios Opening Reception

City Wide Open Studios Opening Reception



Celebrate the festival kickoff at Artspace (50 Orange Street) with all the artists! The central hub exhibition features one work by each of the CWOS participating artists. Here, you can get an overview of the artists exhibiting and plan your studio

Join us for Artspace's 16th annual City-Wide Open Studios this October. Visual
artists from across Connecticut are opening their doors at studios and temporary
spaces around the city over the course of the month, beginning with the
Opening Night Party on Friday, October 4th. Continue savoring local art for the entire month as we highlight Erector Square on October 12/13, Private Studios
(Passport Weekend) on October 19/20, and the
Alternative Space on October 26/27. 

Free and open to the public, CWOS is a wonderful opportunity
to see artists at work and buy affordable art directly from them.

Parking: Street side metered parking monitored until 9:00, There is a garage available right on Orange Street, just before the gallery on the right. Also a lot is available past the gallery on Orange Street and the intersection of George Street.

    Amazing crowds of people coming out to support and celebrate creative minds, I like to think this event helps inspire them to keep on going with their creative process. Loved celebrating with everyone. This is just the beginning...come on down and visit the studios on your own through these next couple of weeks and please do join us for our visit to Erector Square on the 13th!!!

    Anyone arriving late, that's fine, just know that this event gets a very large turn out, so you will have to step up your effort to find us inside...I will be wairing my black and white scarf with piano keys. Ask around too if you do not know us yet, we are a large group, so you should stumble on us.
