The Bemis Center is offering its Open House/Open Studios event this weekend

Mar 8, 2018

The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts will hold an Open House/Open Studios event this Saturday.

Holly Kranker, Residency Program Manager for the Bemis, says the day starts with a Members Mimosa Brunch from 10:30 to Noon. 

The public is welcome to attend the Open House event starting at Noon.  Kranker says there will be nine ARTalks starting at Noon. 

That will be followed by a live performance featuring two artists.  And then the studios are open from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. 

Kranker says the Open House/Open Studios event is held three times a year and coincides with each residency session, usually toward the end of the artists’ time at the Bemis.

"It’s really a rare opportunity for the community to see artworks being developed and the process behind what goes into making a piece of art.  We always see the finished product.  We often times don’t see the research, the development or the trial and error that goes along with it.  And I think it’s exciting to pull the curtain back and see how their process unfolds.”

Kranker says the day’s activities wrap up with an all-ages art activity with artist Pamela Conyers-Hinson.
