Cambridge Arts Council Launches City-Wide Open Studios

For three weekends this spring beginning April 25, artists will be opening their work spaces to the public in the first city-wide open studios event sponsored by the Cambridge Arts Council.

From noon to 6 p.m. on April 25 and 26, artists in north and west sections of the city, which includes the Agassiz, Porter Square, Cambridge Highlands, Strawberry Hill and North Cambridge neighborhoods, as well as Neighborhoods 9 and 10 will be displaying and offering for sale works such as paintings, photographs, jewelry, sculptures, ceramics and mixed media, as well as literature.

Scores of other artists’ studios will be open on May 9 and 10 in neighborhoods in the central part of the city and on May 30 and 31 in East Cambridge, also from noon to 6 p.m. each day.

The city-wide event is an expansion of the “Open Studios” weekends that have taken place for more than a decade in the city, organized by the North Cambridge All Arts Open Studios (NoCa) and the Cambridgeport Artists Studios (CAOS). The new city-wide “Cambridge Open Studios” combines those events with the opportunity for artists in all areas of the city to take part.

More information about the event, including a download of a brochure and list of participating artists as well as a map of their locations is available at www.cambridgeartscouncil.org/CambridgeOpenStudios.html.
