City Wide Open Studio

City Wide Open Studios at Erector Square

Come join us and explore the studios at Erector Square. Get there on time as anyone who has been there will tell you the building is like a maze and it may be difficult to find us once we get started. Mingle with Artist and learn about their creative process over light snacks and beverages. You may want to bring your wallet. ;- )

Explore the artistic riches of New Haven with City-Wide Open Studios! It's a large-scale convening of visual artists from across Connecticut in studios and temporary spaces around New Haven.

The festival will take place over three weekends in October 2012. A central hub exhibition at Artspace will feature one representative work from each participating artist. Also, to celebrate the festival's 15th year, its Crystal Anniversary, we will feature art and events on the theme crystal.

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

Erector Square (315 Peck Street) acts as a hub of artistic activity in Fair Haven. A high concentration of artist studios—housed in a former Erector Set factory—make it an especially exciting place to be during Open Studios. Explore the personal studios of hundreds of local artists on your own or through a guided tour. Artspace volunteers will be on hand with maps, schedules of demonstrations and directions for visitors.

    Some really interesting art work, displayed mostly in their individual studios.. Personally I enjoyed the few spaces where a number of people combined their wok in the larger spaces.. The lifesize puppet making caught my attention,along with the clay pottery group on the lower floor..Always fun.. Thanks Cathy..

    Those of you who still have some steam after our adventure at Erector Square are welcome to go over to Cav A Vin, we have been offered a Perk..., for a nice $5.00 specials board that includes wine/beer/sangria and apps from 4 to 7. Thought that we could go over around 4:30 or so. Please let me know if you might be interested so I may pass that information on to Linda at Cav A Vin.

    • Cathy M

      There is a lot right at the Erector Square building, also street side parking, and just a bit past the Erector Square building on the oposite side of a the street is another small lot just at the intersection.

    I alway have instructions on where to meet just below the name and address of the venue, it is in smaller print, but to be more specific.... In this case we meet in front of the middle of Erector Square (the building is u shaped), in front of that parking lot up against the sidewalk. And..I will have on the Black and White scarf with piano keys.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
