2021 Events

Open Studio Saturdays

We enjoy connecting the resident visual artists with the local community for Open Studio Saturday Events. During the open studio hours the community has the opportunity to meet the artist and see their work. This is also just a great time for community to connect while enjoying art.

Please see the Open Studio Saturday page for dates for the 2021 events.
