ELORA – There are 15 artists working in studios within the building at the Elora Centre for the Arts and while their studios are normally closed to the public, this weekend the studios will be open.
They are opening their doors so you can wander the halls and shop for one-of-a-kind artist-made gifts at affordable prices.
Open House weekend will take place on Nov. 26 and Nov. 27 from 10am to 4pm
There is no charge for admission.
“This is the second year of this Open House weekend event” said Nadine McEwen, a sculptor from the Schoolhouse Arts Cooperative located in the south end of the building.
“We will be showcasing unique gift ideas and stocking stuffers that have been made by artists in our studio” she says.
Pottery, “found object” sculpture, needle felting, original art and prints are just a few of the artistic mediums you will find for sale in their studio.
“This is one of the special things about our community” says Terry Gregg, an encaustic artist who works in oil and wax in her studio on the second floor of the building.
“There are so many artists in our community, and this is a great way to get a sneak peek at a few artist studios and support what artists do.”
The artist studios participating include the Schoolhouse Art Cooperative, Carolyn Drimmie & Karen Dicicco Studio, Terry Gregg and Nancy Ariss studio.
The gallery and artisan shop at the Elora Centre for the Arts will also be open throughout the weekend event.
