(New York NY) – August 28, 2018, The High Line Open Studios presents its annual Fall Art season Artists’ Open Studios Saturday and Sunday, October 13-14, 2018. More than 30 artists in the iconic West Chelsea gallery district will open their studios to the public for a weekend free, self-guided art tour.
Presented by the High Line Open Studios, the artists’ open studios provides the rare opportunity for the public to meet a multitude of artists, to learn about their works, styles and mediums, and to see first-hand those creative spaces generally open exclusively by appointment.
This fall art season art lovers, dealers, collectors and visitors can preview and purchase artists’ works at this annual artists open studios tour, which is free and open to the public. The self-guided tour is an open format that has proven to be an ideal way to encourage dialogue between artists and enthusiasts allowing visitors to gain first hand knowledge about the creative process. It has an invaluable value since it gives collectors the opportunity to purchase works directly from the artists’ studio inventory and discover new talent before it makes its way to the gallery walls.
This is a great opportunity to discover talents and purchase artwork directly from the artist at studio prices less the gallery markup.
The High Line Open Studios is a bi-annual event allowing the artists of the West Chelsea Arts district to open their studios to the public in the spring and in the fall. This October 2-day event attracts art lovers, collectors, artists, and tourists to the neighborhood making it a community-wide celebration.
This is the event when talents can be discovered and artwork can be purchased still off the market.
