Once a year, the artists of the city of Lowell enjoy a citywide celebration of art known as Lowell Open Studios. This year, over 170 artists at 14 venues across the city are participating.
BH member Liz Stewart owns Lush Beads Industrial and has been creating her funky jewelry designs with new and repurposed hardware for about 4 years. "While I still have a fondness for beads and beading, the hardware is what is speaking to me right now," Liz says. You will find her in studio A-205 at the Western Avenue Studios. You can also see some one-of-a-kind pieces at the Wearable Arts Extravaganza on Saturday October 4 starting at 6:30 PM in the Onyx Room at Western Avenue Studios.
BH member Leanne Tremblay owns Loomination and weaves intricate and lovely scarves and home decor. Leanne says, "I am working on a large custom order for a home decor store in Nashville and getting ready for a busy holiday season - I have lots of shows planned and my work will be featured at the annual holiday show at Craftland in Providence." You can see Leanne's work at the Arts League of Lowell Cooperative Gallery located at 307 Market Street.
Lowell Open Studios runs from 11-5 each day. Free parking and shuttle bus service is available. Visitors will be able to take a shuttle to Western Avenue Studios as well as the ALL Cooperative Gallery to visit both Liz's and Leanne's work in person.
