Open Studios a Big Success Once Again!

This past Saturday, May 12, 2012 was the 8th Annual Gateway Arts District Open Studios Tour. I don't know what the official attendance numbers will show but it seemed like record attendance to me. I stopped by Alan Binstock's home studio, Brewer's Arcade, the various spots at Artists on the Tracks including Red Dirt and Flux Studios, Emily Greene Liddle's home studio, and DC GlassWorks. There were good crowds at each spot and all of the artists seemed to be pleased with the outcome of the day.

I was also really pleased by the turnout at the after party held at the Gateway Arts Center - I would estimate attendance at well over 150 artists and neighbors. It was a great moment for our community!
