Please join me at my art studio, 10203 Two Notch Road, Suite F, for 701 CCA Columbia Open Studios, Saturday and Sunday April 21-22, 2012! I’ll be open from 10am – 6pm on Saturday 4/21 and noon – 6pm on Sunday 4/22.
I will be one of 69 artists all over Richland & Lexington counties who will be opening their private, working studios to the public for the weekend!
Columbia Open Studios’ objective is to provide an opportunity for the public to support our local arts community. Admission is free to all of the studios, and my work will be for sale. 701 Center for Contemporary Art, as the nonprofit organizer of the event, does not take a commission on sales.
Before the big weekend, there will also be a very fun kick-off party, Thursday, April 19, 7-11pm, as an artists’ preview and Indie Grits Festival-wide kickoff party in the Grand Hall at 701 Whaley! The entire Midlands cultural scene is going to party together in a fun, informal environment with cash bar by The Whig, a complimentary artisan grits bar by Scott Hall Catering, soul/oldies/pop DJs, visuals, a drawing rally, and more at one of Columbia’s coolest event venues, historic 701 Whaley. Preview the work of the 701 CCA Columbia Open Studios artists, and party down with all of the official partners of The 6th Annual Indie Grits Festival!
