Special Times During Open Door Saturdays

During Saturdays artists work with their doors open. It serves as an invitation for the public and interested up and coming artists to discuss art. The opportunities to connect with artists are endless and can help to provide insight, understanding, critiques and layered dialogue that encourages and enlightens both the artist as well as the one with whom is being spoken to. The remaining Open Door Saturdays within 2011 are: September 17 and October 8, 29.
