Open Studios are a wonderful opportunity for the public to meet local artists, see their artwork, learn about their creative processes, purchase work and perhaps even commission new work.  The inaugural Watertown and Belmont Open Studios has been organized by a committee comprised of artists from both communities, working in collaboration with representatives of the Arsenal Center for the Arts and the Belmont Gallery of Art.  Please join us by participating in art events associated with the First Annual Watertown and Belmont Open Studios.

    I believe I speak on behalf of everyone on the organizing committee when I encourage all eligible artists (those living and/or creating art in Watertown or Belmont, MA) to participate in this inaugural event. The organizing committee and sponsoring organizations will work hard to cover planning and promotion. We need enough artists to participate for this to be an exciting weekend for the public to attend, ensuring sustainability and growth for future years.

    The charge to create this event from scratch is rather daunting! For starters, there is the obvious lack of warehouse studio space as in many other communities, that allow for easy public visitation. Some local artists have expressed concern about inviting the public into their home studio, prompting discussions to brainstorm solutions and alternatives. Some have decided to share their work in their home but to move it to a room adjacent to the entry so the public does not have a tour of the entire house. Others have discussed exploring sharing a public space. We hope you’ll collaborate with others to find the location that works for you!

    Let’s work together to make this a fun and exciting event!

      Hi, Nan!
      I am hoping we can get something worthwhile together. I like my world and I enjoy being an artist, here. I would be happy to help you in any way I can. I can make web sites and flyers, recruit businesses to let us use windows and space if desirable, etc..
      I would like to deal with you, Nan, or Belmont artists. Is that possible?
