So, I moved into a new (physical) space as well recently-- a new studio! It's at Western Avenue Studios in Lowell, MA, and I love it! I've been taking my sweet time choosing colors, painting the walls, cleaning the floor, moving furniture around... and now I have just one day to finish it all (or at least make it presentable), because I'm participating in my first WAS First Saturday Open Studios event this weekend!
Saturday, February 5th to be exact. At the same time, I'm also participating in an event called Gifts from the HeART that's happening within the studio buildings. You pick up a postcard and visit participating studios, where you get a sticker for stopping by. The more stickers you collect, the larger the gift certificate drawing you get to enter. So fun! And I'm ridiculously excited to give out stickers.
If you're in the neighborhood, please stop by and say hello! I'm having a studio-warming party during open studio hours, 12-5. I'll have food + drinks + stickers! And specials! As in sale prices + stuff that never makes it online + probably some freebies. My studio is #410, in the C Mill. I'm not on the printed directory yet, but I'll have signs + postcards up.
Of course, if you need additional motivation, there are over 140 artists in the building, and a large number of them participate in open studios. Oh yeah, and the Classic Elite Factory Store is also at WAS.
Have a great weekend!
