Somerville, MA (PRWEB) April 10, 2013
During the 14th Annual Somerville Open Studios event, Blue Cloud Gallery will be staying open until 9 p.m. Friday, May 3. There will also be a surprise in store that night for shoppers. This Somerville Open Studios event gives the public access to the work of visual artists living and working in the city of Somerville and will run from May 4-5 between 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Somerville Open Studios is a non-profit organization formed for the purpose of producing an annual open studio and related events in Somerville, MA. The event began in 1999 as a way to provide a venue for artists working out of their homes and small studio buildings, as well as those in larger and established buildings. In the 14 years since, Somerville Open Studios has grown to become one of the largest events of its kind in the country with over 400 participating artists displaying their work every spring.
Blue Cloud Gallery will have artists set up outside, talking about their work (craft, art) and giving a demonstration. The artists will have the option of showing more of their work than what is normally displayed in the gallery. This provides an opportunity for shoppers to be much more involved and engaged with artists. Wine and cheese will also be served throughout the weekend.
Blue Cloud Gallery is proud to have helped support Somerville Open Studios recently by providing a $100 gift certificate for their fundraiser. The store also features a high percentage of Somerville artists. Shopping local truly is buying local.
