2010 Open Studio Hartford to be Coordinated by Chi Consulting
Visit 100 Hartford Area Artists – Celebrate Creativity & Purchase Art!
After a two year hiatus, Chi Consulting will once again coordinate Open Studio Hartford! The 21st Annual Open Studio Weekend in Hartford will take place Saturday & Sunday, November 13 & 14, from 11 am to 5 pm. For those two full days, over 100 expected artists from the greater Hartford region will open their studio doors or show at up to 15 participating locations. Musicians, performers, and film artists will host free performances for the public. What makes Open Studio Hartford so unique is that it is an art show of artists of all mediums and all ranges of skills. Each year thousands of attendees flock to Hartford to visit artists’ studios, meet visiting artists, touch their works and purchase art.
“I’m so happy to work with the artists and this event again,” said Chi LaBossiere Kulig, Open Studio Hartford 2010 Event Coordinator. “For the past two years the birth and care of my daughter took precedence. Now that she’s a toddler and much more independent, I have much more time to devote to Open Studio Hartford and the creative community!”
Open Studio Hartford will kick-off with an Opening Reception & Celebration on Thursday, November 4, from 6 pm to 8 pm, at ArtSpace Gallery located at 555 Asylum Street in Hartford, CT. The massive group show will feature one piece of artwork from all artists, live music and dance performances. The artwork for this one show only, will be themed “Coming of Age” in honor of the 21st year for the event. The reception will be sponsored by local restaurants and organizations.

Between November 5th and November 12th the gallery will be open at varying hours so that the public may visit the group show and get a taste for the artists they can visit during the weekend event.
“We have such a wide range of artists,” stated Chi. “Come to the opening reception or gallery hours to preview the wonderful local artists that you will see during the weekend event!”
