February Artisans At Work News

As if the Family Art Attack isn’t enough, there is lots more to know about Artisans At Work this February. Thanks to Tara for passing on her February news. 

February, our theme is The Artistic Family, and as each month, we have a call-out to artists: Artisans at Work Open Call to Artistic Families:

This months show is focusing on families and the creative
ability between family members. All submissions must have at
least 2 to 3 family members submitting up to three works each
(15 max from each family in total). Each artist in the family is
encouraged to provide works of all mediums and small series.
We’re not looking for any specific themes, just the creative
ability among family members. Collaborative works among
family members are accepted as well!Artisans At Work has a monthly show in which a opening is
hosted every First Friday of the month! Live music, food, and
drinks are provided. A great night to come out, discuss artwork
and experience our east end community.
The opening night for February’s “Artistic Families” show is Friday, February 7, from 7:00-10:00pm.
