The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Studio Program is hosting its annual Open Studios event on October 22–24, 2015, with an opening reception on Thursday, October 22. EFA Open Studios is free and open to the public.
The Open Studios showcase a vibrant and diverse community of over 70 artists with established studio practices and recognized careers; all art lovers and appreciators are invited to come explore and interact with the EFA artist community in the intimate setting of their studios. It is an opportunity to see the most recent works by the EFA’s artists at the site of the works’ origin, and to gain meaningful insights into the artists’ practice. Visitors will be able to visit artist studios on all seven floors of EFA’s building and engage directly with artists that work in a wide range of media and artistic sensibilities. Rarely can curators, collectors, dealers, artists, and art appreciators see so many internationally recognized artists working under one roof in Midtown Manhattan.
Additionally, EFA Project Space and EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop will be hosting events at the EFA Center during Open Studios weekend. Refreshments at EFA Open Studios are sponsored by Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, and Baked by Melissa Cupcakes.
