Posted on Dec 5, 2017

April 7th-8th & November 3rd-4th, 2018 FREE OPEN STUDIO WEEKEND

Visit Artists in their Studios, Tour the Galleries


Join us for our regular series of Open Studio weekends which allow you to visit many of our artists in their studios at the Parklawn & Wilkins locations twice a year!


April 7th and 8th, 12:00-5:00 pm
November 3rd and 4th, 12:00-5:00 pm 

This is the most exceptional opportunity to browse the artist’s studios, hallways, and gorgeous work in all eight galleries at Parklawn and Wilkins. Meet more than 130 resident artists, observe their processes, and ask questions to learn more about what they do.

Shop local and handmade with lots of small works, prints, notecards, glass, jewelry, and other affordable items for gifts and holidays and your dear ones just because. Dine locally for lunch or dinner within two miles of Artists & Makers Studios.  (We’ll even provide recommendations – pick up a copy of the list at A&M Studios Parklawn or browse the link ahead of your visit.)

Check out this link to learn more about the benefits of shopping locally in the community where you live!

Of course you can always visit Tuesdays through Saturdays 10-4, and Sundays by chance or  appointment – if our artists are here working they frequently have the doors open. Also plan for our First Friday gallery openings (major holidays move that event to the second Friday.)
