Open Studios – when artists say, “Hey, world, this is my stuff and this is where I make it!” (in not so many words) – proliferate in Spring and Fall, planting season and harvest season.
Our advice about Open Studios, to makers and lovers of art, and also, pretty much everybody: Go. And, if you’re an artist taking part in Open Studios, you might be curious to read artists’ advice about opening one’s studio to the public, in a past ArtSake post.
