Browsing an artists’ open house
Creative entertaining climbs to new heights this weekend when more than a hundred artists open their live-work spaces to art lovers and potential buyers.
It all takes place at the Brewery, a renovated industrial space downtown and one of the largest artist colonies in the world. This compound has a little bit of everything--apartments, studios and a restaurant--and this coming weekend marks the biannual free Brewery Art Walk.
One of the best parts of open houses is the thrill of discovery, and there’s always a surprising range of work featured at the Brewery. Home decor buffs will like the large collection of modernist table and floor lamps by Peri Shefik as well as a selection of colorful abstract paintings by Joshua Elias and Emily Halpern. Even more dramatic are modern metal and wood sculptures by Bruce Gray.
We’ll be on the lookout for something great to purchase--artists will be selling works at discounted prices. At the very least, we plan to chat up some of our city’s cleverest residents.
