More than 40 artists in the iconic West Chelsea Arts district will open their studios to the public for a weekend free, self-guided art tour, on May 10-11, 2014. Presented by the West Chelsea Artists Group, the artists’ open studios provides the rare opportunity for the public to meet a multitude of artists, to learn about their works, styles and mediums, and to see first-hand those creative spaces generally open exclusively by appointment.
The self-guided tour is an open format that has proven to be an ideal way to encourage dialogue between artists and enthusiasts allowing visitors to gain first hand knowledge about the creative process. It has an invaluable value since it gives collectors the opportunity to purchase works directly from the artists’ studio inventory and discover new talent before it makes its way to the gallery walls.
This is a great opportunity to discover talents and purchase artwork directly from the artist.
