Artists who live, work or are affiliated with the Lexington, MA arts community are invited to participate in the 9th Annual Lexington Open Studios, April 29 and 30, 2017, 11am-5pm. Artists working in all media are eligible. In addition to home studios, Lexington Arts and Crafts Society and Munroe Center for the Arts will show work of their own artists. Munroe Center Artists are all invited to sign up and open their doors. We will work with artists who do not have their own studio space in Lexington to find shared space. Community Spaces are available at Munroe Center for the Arts for those without their own studios. Another option is to share a home studio! Opportunities are available to show your work in one of the other artist’s home studio for Open Studio weekend.
