Press Release


June 2, 2016 Glocester, RI — Artist Open Studios will happen Saturday, November 5, 2016 from 10 am to 4 pm. Artist Open Studios welcomes you for a personal glimpse into the studios and lives of local artists featured on this year's tour throughout the Rhode Island towns of Foster, Glocester, and Scituate.

This year, the AOS is a proud recipient of a Rhode Island State Arts Council award. RISCA received 302 applications and awarded a limited number of non-profit arts organizations with funding. In addition, a special thanks to the Scituate Library who has joined forces with AOS and featured AOS artists' work throughout the year. It is due to the support of these two organizations and our generous sponsors that AOS can offer a FREE event to the public.

AOS, Artist Open Studios, is an absolutely FREE family event. Each artist's studio is a unique space that embraces the mind and heart of the artist. It is within this space that one learns much about the artist ~ how they create, where they draw their inspiration, and even why they create. Studios range from old renovated barns, to new rustic barns, to uniquely-designed studios within their homes. You will learn first-hand about the techniques of wheel-thrown ceramics, glassblowing, sculpture, watercolor painting, jewelry design, oil painting and photography. You will have the opportunity to see original artwork being created, observe demonstrations, ask questions directly to the artists, and even try your hand with the art materials. Artwork will also be available for purchase.

AOS's talented artists have exhibited throughout New England in various galleries and art shows. Each artist brings their own unique style and their own personality to this creativity trail. Meander through the countryside of the north-west corner of Rhode Island where creativity blossoms. Now in our 16th year, many AOS visitors return year after year visiting their favorite artists and exploring some new favorites. Come and explore the arts.
