Gowanus will be awash with art this weekend for the annual Gowanus Open Studios.
Take a peek inside the creative environments of hundreds of Brooklyn artists this month with the return of Gowanus Open Studios.
The event has grown immensely -- from 150 participating artists to 350 in just the last five years -- and become more integrated within the community.
This weekend is the 18th annual Gowanus Open Studios, when neighborhood artists open their doors to allow the public to visit their studios, learn about their art and the creative process and to buy artworks. This year 315 artists and arts organizations are participating, including a huge range of types of artists: painters, sculptors, performers, printmakers, photographers, installation artists and many more.
Those planning to attend can check out a list of participating artists here and can find a map of studio locations here. In addition to visiting studios, those attending can sign up for curated tours which will take place on Saturday, October 18 and Sunday, October 19. There will also be a panel discussion on how to build an art collection on Saturday and a walking tour of murals on both days.
