Organized by Arts Gowanus, a non-profit working to support, promote, and advocate for local artists, Gowanus Open Studios (GOS) returns this year with over 300 participating artist studios in the Gowanus neighborhood and slightly beyond. For one weekend each year, artists working in the former factories, warehouses, and studio buildings of Gowanus invite the public to visit their spaces, see their work, and talk about their processes. Everyone is welcome.
A great way to explore GOS 2018 is to embark on one of the five self-guided tours created by renowned artists and art world professionals especially for this event. Visitors can also create their own itineraries using the Online Directory of Artists on the Arts Gowanus website. The directory includes all the participants, along with samples of their art and an interactive map. Signs and balloons will identify each open studio building.
Those unsure where to begin may want to start with some of the neighborhood’s biggest studio buildings, each of which boasts dozens of artists who will be showcasing their work. Printed maps will be available at various locations throughout the neighborhood. From any of these buildings, visitors will be in a good position to stop by smaller or more off-the-beaten-track studios.
Spaces will be open Saturday and Sunday, October 20–21, from noon to 6 pm. For more information on Gowanus Open Studios 2018, visit artsgowanus.org/gos-2018.
