Open Studios this weekend !! Saturday, October 13 and Sunday, October 14


North Adams, Mass.—Eclipse Mill Artist Lofts will host the 14th annual North Adams Open Studios on Saturday, October 13 and Sunday, October 14, from 11 am to 5 pm both days.  There will be more than a dozen artists’ studios open to the public. The event is free and fully handicap accessible. The Eclipse Mill is at 243 Union Street , North Adams.

“This is a great chance for the public to meet artists in the studios where they work,” said Gail Sellers, one of this year’s participants.   “There are so many different types of artists here, from painters, sculptors, potters and fiber artists, to collage artists and printmakers. A milliner and a jewelry maker will also display their wares. It’s an opportunity to meet with them, learn about their work, and purchase work directly from them.”

The Eclipse Mill, a former cotton mill built in 1896, is home to a variety of artists and creative businesses, including G.J. Askins Bookseller, River Hill Pottery, and Brill Gallery. There is artwork on display throughout the Mill, as well as a concurrent exhibition of work by resident artists in the Eclipse Mill Gallery.
