Artrails: October 13-14 and 20-21

The world of the studio is often cloaked from view, a private reserve of creativity. The Artrails Open Studio program allows an intriguing look into an artist’s life — not only to see a wide scope of their work — which facilitates a deeper entrance into the artist’s universe — but to discover mysteries of their materials, to glimpse into their art practice by visiting their studio and surveying the set-up, or to pose a question about their process and philosophy. We celebrate our Caerus artists who dedicate their energy in the undertaking of opening their studios and extending their generosity to promote the dialog between the general and artistic community.

For more information and to view the map to the various artists studios — please click on artrails.org.
