GET UP CLOSE & PERSONAL OPEN STUDIOS KICKS OFF THE FINAL OF THE THREE SATURDAYS ART SERIES SATURDAY, JANUARY 19TH, 4:00 - 7:00 P.M.

Get up close and personal with our current Artists-in-Residence during this special Open Studios. Meet artists Ben Butler, Claudia Borgna, Laura Johnson, Hunter Stabler, and Adam Parker Smith and learn about how they create their unique bodies of art. And remember, you can always learn even more about our artists by listening to our exclusive BC Podcasts.

Open Studios precedes the final installment of Tugboat Presents and the bemisUNDERGROUND Three Saturdays Art Series. This one-night-only event showcases performers from all music genres as they pursue various media in the visual arts. And at 8:00 p.m., you can welcome Bemis Center Artist-in-Residence Jamie O'Shea as he returns "from the past." O'Shea has kept himself locked in his studio since January 1. He blocked out windows, set artificial light to timers, turned back his clock and put all news and internet communication on a delay. He’s been living a 36-hour day, while the rest of us have continued on 24. His exodus on January 19th will send him six days into his future -- and into our present day.
