The building was a beautiful old school building that has been renovated into artist studios. With three floors, 55 artists, and lots of demonstrations going on, there was plenty to see! Lois was sweet enough to show me around to some of her friends for a while, then I wandered through the rest of the building on my own.
Here's Lois and her studio-mate with some of their art!
Here are a few shots of the art. There were so many things to see! Pottery, oil paintings, jewelry, woven scarves, cartoons, sculptures, watercolor...the list goes on! Here is a little taste.

After walking around the Open Studio for a few hours, I headed into downtown Concord. Concord is one of my favorite little towns around Boston. There's Walden Pond, a thousand historical sites to visit, fantastic restaurants (like 80 Thoreau), and several good antique stores I like to visit. On this trip, I got a tiny antique metal sheep for myself and some old watch gears for Travis. I'm planning on making the watch parts into some kind of steampunk pin for him to wear when the Gentlemen's Very (Very) High Art Society plays...or the next time we go to a Steampunk event.
|Clever name, huh?|
What are your favorite art exhibits?
