Brian Petro's Open Studio!

Swing by and visit me first in my studio in the 'hood where I and 30 other Mid City Artists have their studios open to the public for the weekend. Secure a map at my place, then head out to my cohort's studios. There will be a sandwich board in front of Vastu announcing access to my studio off the lower showroom of Vastu, 1829 14th Street, NW.... Open Sat Noon-6:37, Sun Noon - 4:43. ;-)

Walk from one studio to another within this vibrant downtown (all within 2 square miles) or grab a pedicab or bikeshare to get around. This bi-annual event, now in its 10th year, offers visitors a rare glimpse into the artists' working space with unique locations ranging from offices, retail, carriage houses, spare bedrooms, apartments to basements. The participating artists represent a great diversity of work, including drawings, sculptures, paintings, prints, photographs and mixed media.

See to download a map before you venture out if you choose.

Hang out with friends, circulate through the neighborhood, check out the art, eat, drink and be merry . . . purchase some art for yourself and as gifts. Be inspired! Buy local.

Plan your visits in advance by flipping through the artists' pages online to see what you like, who is participating, and when. Not all artists are open both days. Download the map to guide you along or check our website closer to the event to get a free smartphone app that you can use on your tour. We will also have more information on special meetup tours led by local art luminaries.
