ARTISTS' WINDOW
We offer a comfortable space for two "Artist's Windows". This popular area sheds light on the artistic process, how artists make art. Each artist has an opportunity to schedule a time when the public can watch them practice their craft, opening a window into the lives of artists as they go about their work. The schedule will be posted during the Show.
