Open Studios Evanston this Saturday

June promises to be a busy and artful month. The artist community in Evanston has banded together to host Open Studios Evanston. In its second year, June 6 allows Evanston residents and visitors to poke around the studios of local artists, including those who do not generally open their studio to the public. This Saturday I will pop in at Creative Coworking. Several of the artists adorning the building’s walls will be present between 12 and 5 pm.

From Central street to Oakton, painters, sculptors, filmmakers, jewelers, clothing designers, photographers, puppeteers, acrobats, singers, dancers, and other creatives are hosting open houses to let the curious wanderer explore Evanston’s art scene.

I will mingle with the resident artists at 922 Davis Street arond noon before moving along the trail myself. Numerous arts organizations, galleries and boutiques are joining the celebration with special events. Maps and a list of participants are provided the day of the event at locations throughout the city.

My friends at Sidetracked Studio are hosting a fundraiser raffle for the Trio Animal Foundation, and Hip Circle Studio will teach you how to choreograph a dance. Encaustic arts will also be represented at Gather and at Perspective Gallery. Dragonfly Boutique (hostess to my earrings and pendants) is having a 20% off moving sale through Sunday.
