LAA Open Studios

Loft Artist Association - First Open Studios at 575 Pacific Street


Celebrating Our New Home in the South End

Live  Music Friday evening by Kathy Muir
Friday  November 1st from 6 - 9 PM

Roll out the New!  The LAA  kicks off a new era of art meets life in the South End- the long time arts  group has found a new home at 575 Pacific Street.  Open Studios, the LAA’s annual weekend long  art event, will be quite a party this year as the LAA inaugurates their freshly  built out studios and galleries.  Doors  open wide to the public, artists share their work and process with the  inquisitive, and a raffle and auction add to the fun.  After 6 years at 845 Canal, gentrification  caught up with the 35 year old arts organization, propelling them into the  market for new digs.  Raw space on the  second floor at 575 Pacific fit the bill for our new home and our prior  landlord, Building and Land Technology, built out the new space for us.

Join us as we swing open the doors of our new home for the very first  time.

LAA president Ellen Gordon is thrilled share the  news about the exciting new space with two galleries and the addition of a  dozen talented new artist members to the impressive list of established members  of the Loft Artists Association stage. The group is especially excited to welcome musician Kathy Muir to the  LAA, she brings a distinctive voice and lyrical style that combines a blend of  acoustic and pop influences infused with a hint of jazz, Kathy brings a unique  spectrum of songs to the stage.

The Loft Artists pioneered the South End of Stamford  setting up an artist colony in the old Yale & Towne Factory that now boasts  contemporary apartments.  They produced  happenings, performances, tours and lectures that attracted thousands of people  from the tri state area.  They taught  workshops, gave demonstrations and opened their doors inviting the community to  see the creative process first hand…. and now, 35 years later,  they continue their great outreach tradition  and invite you to what has become known as Stamford’s greatest art experience,“OPEN STUDIOS 2013”.

So join us on Friday November 1st from 6 – 9  pm.

The Loft Artists Association is a non-profit  organization dedicated to building connections within Fairfield County’s visual  arts community and exposing the general public to artists and their work.  Their grassroots events attract thousands of  visitors throughout the tri-state area and have been recognized by funding  agencies, including the Connecticut Commission on the Arts, corporate and  private sponsors, the City of Stamford and by visitors who return year after  year.

Visit on Saturday and Sunday on your own....check the website below for details. Admission and parking are free. (A donation is  suggested.) Handicapped access is available on Saturday and Sunday. For directions and more information visit or call [masked]-4153.

    Loved it! I had a lot of fun. And, I got to say hi to the Governor who was also there. That's right Governor Dan Malloy was there. It was a great event. The artists and the art work was wonderful. And, the food and wine was delicious. It was a great party in Stamford. :) I really did have fun. Thanks for organizing Cathy.

    There is a 50/50 chance I will go so I have not indicated my attendance.
    But I have noted the address, so maybe I will see you all there! (Depends on
    how tiring work is.)

    I'll be on vacation so I'm disappointed that I can't attend, especially since I live in Stamford. It sounds terrific. Enjoy.
