Saturday and Sunday May 21 and 22nd. 1pm – 6pm. 450 & 454 Beaumont avenue, Parc Ex. Montreal
The Long Haul occupies 8000 square feet of an industrial building. With 18 studios housing 30 artists, it is a hive for creation. Artists working in all visual media will open their doors to the public to show their work spaces, their art and their works in progress. The open studio weekend will give art enthusiasts a chance to engage with artists and art on an intimate level, and collectors an opportunity to buy directly from the artists. Flame working glass, weaving on a loom, and paper-making demonstrations will be given throughout the weekend. Drawings, paintings, photography, textiles, jewellery and sculptures will be for sale. Making it over the tracks from the Mile End is guaranteed to satisfy your curiosity, and will give you a peek into a neighbourhood is changing faster than you can say: g e n t r i f i c a t i o n. The Invisible show will also be open for viewing during the open studio hours.
