November 4, 6, 13 & 14: Open Studio Hartford @ Various Venues, Hartford
Open Studio weekend(s) is pretty epic in proportion, and we won't even attempt to describe all the participating artists and performers and venues, when you can explore all those details for yourself on this pretty good website...
Suffice to say, we're most interested in the associated parties for schmooze/photo ops. Like the opening reception at ArtSpace, which is going on Thursday evening from 6-8 p.m. Just look what happened to Katie Scenic last time she attended an art reception at that venue!
Haha, just kidding - Katie Scenic is an artist, and that was just some performance art.
This is a perfect opportunity to explore places in Hartford you never knew existed, like the Hartford Artisans Weaving Center, where the elderly/visually impaired learn to weave.
During the second weekend, our fav-o venue Real Art Ways will be hosting the Connecticut Cinematic Celebration - yet another indie film showcase in Hartford!
We're looking forward to checking in with friends-of-the-blog throughout the event, including our many peeps at ArtSpace and the nu-artspace, Billings Forge. We look forward to living in one of these communities someday ourselves, because blogging is art. We'll be pleased to open our doors to the public for some participatory bloggery.
