Don’t wait until a studio weekend to meet artists in person and observe them as they create unique works of art. Instead, visit Goggleworks where the entire second and third floors of a restored factory are filled with working artist studios. Changing exhibits, classrooms and a restaurant occupy the first floor.
In order to ensure that only the most professional artists occupy their studios, Goggleworks demands that the artists demonstrate a commitment to their career through an existing body of work, have achieved a high degree of creative and technical ability, display obvious talent and have nurtured an individual vision, create original work using original concepts, show a proven ability in their chosen medium through a combination of participation in juried exhibitions and professional experience. And that’s all before they get to work and exhibit at Goggleworks!
In addition to hosting 33 working artists, Googleworks offers classes in ceramics, drawing, painting, hot glass, metalsmithing, screen printing, special topics, warm glass and woodworking.
