Join the Arlington Center for the Arts (ACA) for our 23rd Annual Arlington Open Studios happening on Saturday, November 13, 2021. This event will be returning to a primarily in-person format, with lots of new features and visitor favorites!
The ACA is pleased to be presenting over 50 participants this year featured at 3 locations in Arlington Center and the Robbins Library will be featuring a Book & Art Sale as part of the event! Our 6 Studio Artists will also be opening their doors to visitors as well! Participating artists are presenting a range of mediums including painting, photography, fiber, ceramics, glass, fine jewelry, mixed media, printmaking, and sculpture. We are also thrilled to be hosting AOS 2021 on our largest event footprint to date!
