Arlington Open Studios 2019

The Arlington Center for the Arts is presenting its 20th Annual Arlington Open Studios event on Saturday, November 16, 11am – 6pm! This event showcases artists and artisans from Arlington and beyond in a display of arts in all its forms and media. There will be more than 60 visual artists in attendance displaying work that includes ceramics, paintings, jewelry, textiles, woodworking, photography, and more! We also present a full schedule of music performances and poetry readings throughout the day.

This annual celebration of artistic talent brings the community together to discover the innovation and creativity of our neighbors and friends, while supporting local artists. In 2019, the ACA is pleased to welcome Butternut Bakehouse as our food vendor, and they will provide a selection of sweet and savory baked goodies for purchase.

Arlington Open Studios 2019 will be happening in two locations this year – Arlington Town Hall (730 Mass Ave) and at the Central School Building (home of ACA – 20 Academy St).
