On Saturday and Sunday, October 1st and 2nd, explore the life and works of 80+ artists working with diverse mediums, artistic goals, backgrounds, ages, and experiences and wander over 16,000 square feet of private and open-air studios and communal work spaces in the clay, print, wood, and paint studios at Running With Scissors Art Studios (250 Anderson Street) from 10am – 5pm on Saturday and noon – 4pm on Sunday.
