Dedham Open Studios this weekend!

October 6, 2013

Preview day on October 5th (see map for participating artists and locations)

Dedham isn't only home to the famous Dedham Pottery, but also to a growing number of talented and diverse artists in myriad media, ranging from sculpture and murals to paintings and jewelry. Dedham Open Studios is a relaxed and fun one-day community event, where local artists can show and offer their work for sale.

Locations include:
NewBridge on the Charles
Dedham Square including Dedham Square Artist Guild
 (various locations, outdoor space available)
and Motherbrook Arts and Community Center

This is a program of Dedham Shines, the umbrella organization of Dedham Open Studios, just completed its first public art project with the installation of 15 fiberglass rabbits throughout Dedham. They were sold at auction in the fall of 2012. Currently, Dedham Shines is sponsoring a utility box project in conjunction with the Dedham DPW. The NEW Motherbrook Arts and Community Center is open in East Dedham with artist studio space available and classes to come. There is a art renaissance happening in Dedham that the artists of the famed Dedham Pottery would be proud of!
