Happy Holidays!

We want to wish our vast community of artist members, board members, clients, donors, funders, staff and volunteers a Happy Holiday and all the best for the New Year!

Please note that our office and galleries will be closed from December 19th until January 3rd, 2022, and we will reopen on January 4th.

Approved members with both fobs will have access to the studio 24/7 during the holidays. Please continue to practice health and safety measures, and stay home if you are feeling unwell. Emergency contact information will be made available in the studio.

For details about visiting the building click here. Our online shop remains open; however, curbside pick-up and order shipping will resume in the New Year.

We look forward to seeing both new and familiar faces at Open Studio in the coming year!
