Among the life forms springing forth this time of year: an abundance of Massachusetts open studios.
For artists participating in one of the numerous open studios in April, May, and June, it’s a time to welcome friends, fans, and strangers into your work space to see your art (for some advice when doing so, read a past ArtSake post). For others, artists and art-lovers alike, it’s a chance to support your local creative community and get a glimpse into the fertile landscape of Massachusetts art-making.
