Nice variety of shops/studios most with the artists present. Good parking, easy to get to right off Central Ave. Personalized feel getting to meet the local artists in their own studios.

This is a great place to visit on the first Thursday of each month, when they have an open house. Visit with artists and buy some local art -- or just treat it as a free night at a fantastic and diverse art gallery.

If you enjoy art crawls and believe in artists who are pursuing their dreams without the benefit of any state or federal grants or financial aid check this place out sometime. There's a annual event, The Northeast Art-A-Whirl, a 3 day event when all the...More
