Open Studios Registration

Registration Open

Save the date for the 9th annual city-wide Cambridge Arts
Open Studios, May 13 & 14, 2017.

  • Early Registration Deadline: December 31, 2016
  • Extended Registration Deadline: February 3, 2017

Venue Types
Artists are welcome to show in their own space (i.e. a studio or home) or in a group venue. Cambridge Arts will be arranging for at least one group or 'common' venue/exhibition space in each neighborhood of the city to host artists that might not otherwise have a place to show their works. If you are interested in showing at a common venue, please make sure to note this on your registration form. If you would like to collaborate independently with other artists to have a group venue, please feel free to do so.

Artist Demonstrations
Open Studios provides people with the rare opportunity to show members of the public your process and inspiration. Take the Open Studios experience a step farther by demonstrating how your work is created.

Performing Artists
Cambridge Arts invites performing artists of all media (music, dance, theater, poetry, etc.) to showcase their work by pairing with a studio artist or common venue. Performing Artists may also participate by opening their own space as well. Paired performance slots at individual studios or common venues will be assigned in consultation with artists after the registration deadline. Each participating artist will have a 30 minute "showcase" in which to perform their works. Groups may also perform but setups must be simple. Performers that register as a group may only perform as a group. Group participation fees apply.
