Palm Beach County Artists to Showcase Studios in Weekend Event
More than 65 artists in Boca Raton will be opening their studios to the public for free this Saturday, inviting them to interact with the creative minds behind the artwork. Hosted by the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County, the event, titled Palm Beach County Open Studios, offers a unique first-hand look at the processes involved in creating professional artwork.
With a variety of mediums on display, including painting, glassblowing, photography, sculpting, and jewelry making, the event promises to be an insightful and stimulating experience for art enthusiasts of all kinds. The festival aims to promote the value of art in the community and expand the audience for local artists.
On May 20, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., the doors of participating artist studios will be open for visitors. An interactive map of participating artisans can be accessed by clicking here. This map provides useful information about the location of the artists’ studios, making it easier for attendees to plan their day.
The event offers a unique opportunity for art lovers, collectors, and budding artists, allowing them to meet the artists and understand the inspiration and skills that go behind creating their art. Jessica Ransom, the director of artist services for the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County, emphasized the importance of the event, noting that visitors can learn about the creative process, ask questions, and even purchase pieces that they can learn more about from the artists themselves.
Ransom highlighted the event’s particular significance, stating, “In a gallery walking around, you never get to meet the artists. So, this is really unique because you get to go and talk to the artists. They’ll all be in their studios, working and answering your questions. If you’re a budding artist, you could take the opportunity to ask questions to learn more about making art. Or if you’re a collector, you have an opportunity to buy some pieces that you can actually learn more about from the artist.”
Palm Beach County Open Studios is a celebration of creativity and provides visitors with a one-of-a-kind experience. Those interested in experiencing this intimate and refreshing event can visit the interactive map on their website and plan their day accordingly.
