An Open Studios and Grand Opening Celebration Success Story!

On Saturday, September 24th over two hundred guests visited the Studios at Porter Mill to celebrate the Grand Opening of the North Shore’s newest artist studio building. Over twenty artists, including painters, photographers and printmakers, opened the doors of their studios to the public and shared their art, and the spaces in which they create. As day transitioned into evening we continued the celebration by enjoying art, food, drinks and music in the large, first floor gallery. Below are some photos that document the amazing time that was had by all.
