Open Studio Tour Looking for Artists
Annual spring event highlights arts community in Gateway Arts District.
The Gateway Arts District is looking for artists to showcase their work during the 9th Annual Gateway Community Development Corporation's Open Studio Tour on May 11, 2013.
More than 50 artists in the Gateway Arts District have registered for the event so far, according to an announcement from the Gateway CDC. Registration details and applications can be downloaded at the Open Studio Tour's Eventbrite page.
To participate, artists must have their studios located in neighborhoods east of Queens Chapel Road in the towns of Hyattsville, North Brentwood, Brentwood and Mount Rainier.
The deadline to apply for the tour is March 17, 2013 at 5 p.m.
Selected artists will be asked to provide a safe and clean studio for visitors to tour between the hours of 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., along with information and work for the visitors to peruse.
The Gateway CDC will provide maps, brochures, and will handle all media and publicity tasks in the weeks leading up to the event.
Last year's open studio tour drew an estimated 400 people to the arts district, which runs along Baltimore and Rhode Island Avenues between Mount Rainier and Hyattsville, to view the works of roughly 120 local artists.
