The annual OPEN STUDIO WEEKEND is a landmark event when artists across the Louisville Metro area open their work spaces to the public. It’s an opportunity for fans, collectors, fellow artists, or those just curious about Louisville’s bustling scene to get behind-the-scenes views of creative processes, learn about new artists in the area, and take advantage of studio sales.

Sadly, the Coronavirus pandemic has made in-person studio visits too dangerous for the moment. We hope that by the spring we will once again be able to meet in person. In the meantime, the show must go on!

This year’s Open Studio Weekend Juried Exhibition will take place November 6 – December 12 at the Cressman Center for Visual Arts. The show features work from past OSW exhibitions selected by LVA’s new director, Kristian Anderson. Participating artists include: Megan Bickel, Debby Bird, Elizabeth Bizianes, Ashley Brossart, Thomas Cannady, Lindsay Frost, Angie Reed Garner, Nancy Gordon Moore, Steve Heine, Bryan Holden, Noah Howard, EVPL, Lori Larusso, Debra Lott, Samantha Ludwig, Kate Mattingly, Tara Remington and Caroline Waite.

On Friday December 6, 2020, we will be open for the First Friday Trolley Hop from 1pm – 8pm. Reservations will be required and only 10 visitors will be permitted in the gallery at a time. See our covid-19 policies and link to reservation form Here
