It's time for ArtSpace Maynard's annual Open Studios. This is your chance to see what happens in that old middle school on Summer Street. Walk around, poke your head into the various studios, and say hello—all studio doors will be open.
Think your kids are going to be bored to tears (or screams)? Think again. Many artists are gracious enough to have things that kids can touch (but it's always a good idea to ask artists if their work is too fragile for kids to handle, just in case). In a time where art and creative time is being removed from the classroom, isn't it nice to be able to show them some of the creativity that bases itself right here in Maynard?
In the gallery you'll find the annual group exhibit. Every artist is invited to submit a piece for the show, so if you start there you'll get a visual sense of the talent in the building. It might even help to spur you in the direction of a particular studio.
If you come on Sunday and hang out till the end at 5:00, you'll get the privilege of hearing the music group The Farewells play a set in the ArtSpace Gallery (one of the members is also a visual artist at ArtSpace).
Whatever day you come in, please know that we are so happy that you are interested enough to come and visit us.
