Lowell Open Studios

by Liz Stewart of Lush Beads

On the first weekend in October, the artists of Lowell celebrate creativity and imagination during Lowell Open Studios. LOS happens this weekend on October 5-6, and runs from 11-5 each day.

This year, we have over 180 artists participating across 14 venues.  It is our biggest year ever!

This is my second year as chairperson of the committee. Being part of this group makes me realize how much work goes into putting together a great Open Studios event. It's not as simple getting people registered, printing a brochure, and *poof* we have Open Studios.  There's grant writing, fundraising, handling registrations and payments, graphic design, publicity, marketing, logistics, and balancing the needs/wants of all the participants without going over budget.  I encourage you to become a part of your local Open Studios planning committee - they would welcome your help and enthusiasm!

I hope you will join my city, Lowell, in celebrating our love of art and artists this weekend.  I'll be in my shop at the Western Avenue Studios in studio A-313.  Please stop by and say hello!
