Saturday, November 2nd — 5pm-9pm.
Join us at Heron Arts for our inaugural open studio showcase, presenting new completed works from a group of artists working across mediums — including paint, metal, blown glass, and digital light projection.
The show focuses on the interplay between artistic personalities and forms. All the artists have collaborated on a single, large-scale piece that incorporates each of their mediums. Each artist will also present an individual work, relating that component to the whole.
