The British Museum! The resources, it’s so close to New York but not New York. The culture, the art, the people. It’s wonderful and so close to home.

On the way to the bathroom you can have a tunnel art gallery. Anybody can show work. It exposes all the wonders from around us. Sharing the love.

I’m new to the area but lived in Boston for many years. New Haven is walkable—like Cambridge. I love the architecture, food, art & being able to walk around. New Haven has it all! And history too!

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT OPEN STUDIOS?

At City Wide Open Studios you get lots of people, lots of questions, people interested in art & the process. It’s a good experience for artists to know what people want to know about the work or the process.

As an artist, you don’t have a lot of feedback from people who aren’t artists. Feedback is positive, a chance for people to see what happens and to see what engages people.
