ARTISTS OPEN THEIR DOORS TO SHARE THEIR PROCESS AND ART
Artist Open Studios will happen Saturday, November 2, 2019 from 10 am to 4 pm.
Artist Open Studios is a time for the public to get a personal glimpse into the studios and lives of local artists featured on this year's
tour. It will take place in the towns of Foster, Glocester, and Scituate, Rhode Island.
AOS, Artist Open Studios, is a FREE family event that offers an opportunity to learn about artists and their studio environments. This
year, the AOS is a proud recipient of a Rhode Island State Council award. In addition, a special thanks to the Scituate Library which
has joined forces with AOS and has featured our artists' work throughout the year. It is due to the support of these two organizations
and our generous sponsors that we can offer a free event which is open to the public.
Artist Open Studios is a unique experience where artists open their work spaces and people can learn a lot about the artist -- how
they create, the source of their inspiration, and even why they create. Studios range from old renovated barns, to new rustic barns,
to custom-designed studios which are attached to their homes. You will learn first-hand about the techniques of wheel-thrown
pottery, glassblowing, sculpture, photography, oil and acrylic painting .You will get 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.
This year, we have 9 exceptional artists, Each participant brings their own unique exciting new style and personality to this trail of
artists. Come and meet them all. Spend a day in the north-west corner of Rhode Island, where creativity blossoms.
Now in our 19th year, many AOS visitors are loyal to the event, returning year after year, visiting their favorite artists and exploring
some new favorites. Come explore!
