SLASH! Second Saturday
New Years Sale & Open Studios
It's a new year and a great time for us to make some room in the studio! The artists of Sawyer Yards invite you to “SLASH! Second Saturday”, when many will offer deep discounts on existing art to make space for new work in 2016. Spend the afternoon wandering through four repurposed warehouses and discover an extensive selection of painting, sculpture, jewelry, photography, clothing, textiles, printmaking, mixed media and more.
Get behind the scenes access to artists in their working environments and see works in progress. You might even find something to take home with you! The event is free and we would love for you bring some friends.
No RSVP required. Free entry and free parking.
WHAT IS SECOND SATURDAY?
On the second Saturday of each month, the artists of Sawyer Yards (The Silos, Silver Street, Spring Street Studios, and Winter Street Studios) open their studios to the public from 2-5pm. It's a laid back way to meet some talented artists, explore the Washington Avenue Arts District, and maybe find a treasure or two!
