Newton Open Studios

2015 Spring Open Studios
Coming THIS WEEKEND: April 11-12,

Saturday & Sunday 11am to 5pm

Join the fun! Browse, explore, and buy art and beautifully crafted objects directly from over 150 local artists.

You’ll see painting, jewelry, photography, ceramics, sculpture, prints, wearable fabrics and much more.

NOS is one of the largest and longest running open studios events in the region! 50 pop-up exhibit/sales locations all across Newton have plenty of free parking, and many have handicap access. Red balloons mark the locations.

 One of my favorite places to get great food is L’Aroma Cafe and they are also one of the locations for Newton Open Studios. Bonus! I’ll take a soy latte and a spin around the upstairs where the following artists will have tables set up.
