PAST: ART: Union Arts hosts their first building-wide Open Studio on SAT, Nov 9th from 12:00pm - 6:00pm, See works by over 25 artists! Free

Open Studio at Union Arts by Union Market
Saturday, November 9th
12:00pm - 6:00pm

The community at Union Arts hosts its first ever, building-wide open studio this Saturday from noon to 6pm. Over 25 artists - including one of my very dear friends, and sculptor, Wendy Lehman - will be participating. Come see work in progress, browse finished pieces and purchase artwork directly from the creator. Enjoy food, fun, art, music, vinyl records, and have a chance to mingle with some of DC's creatives.

While there, you can also check out their neighbor, Union Market - which I describe to people "Imagine if Dean and Deluca and Eastern Market fell in love and had a baby." Definitely recommend popping in there if you haven't been yet - see walking map.

On another side note, the art studios are in the space that used to house a nightclub. Pretty wild if you've been there before to see it now as a studio space. Some elements are still the same.
