On the first Saturday of every month, Western Avenue Studios & Western Avenue Lofts artists open their doors to the public. Come take a peek inside their work spaces and see for yourself why Western Avenue is the creative soul of Lowell.
We are celebrating the Dog Days of Summer with a special shout out to our artists that love painting the four legged creatures we share our lives with. (No diss to the felines out there – you can find them featured in artwork too!!) Open Studios is a day to chat with artists about their creative process, find out about classes, and order a portrait of Fido!
What else happens on an OS Saturday? Food truck Chez Rafiki will be on site all day. Navigation Brewing is open from 2-10pm. And the Loading Dock Gallery hosts its’ monthly reception for the gallery’s new show “Funky Book Show” from 4-6pm.
Western Avenue is a complex of four buildings of artist studios and loft residences that number over 350 artists. We think that makes us the largest artist community at least on the East Coast – right here in Lowell MA!!
This is a free event AND we have plenty of free parking. Oh yeah – we’re dog friendly too!
