The 15th annual open studio tour for the Gateway Arts District will take place on Saturday, May 11 and feature more than 200 local artists at studios, galleries and art spaces along Route 1 corridor.
A mainstay of the local arts scene, the open studio tour has more than doubled the number of places to visit. Notable spots include Red Dirt Studio, Joe’s Movement Emporium, the Washington Glass School, Portico Gallery, D.C. Glass Works and Pyramid Atlantic.
The Washington Post recently highlighted the studio tour, arguing that the arts community stretching from Mount Rainier to Hyattsville “boasts enough independent galleries, offbeat vintage shops and restaurants to rival its D.C. brethren.”
There, you’ll be able to sample food from the vendors at the upcoming Savor artisanal food hall at Studio 3807 and enjoy an interactive public art installation using light projection from a group of artists from Vienna, Austria, known as Tag Tool Crew/OMAi.
The public, interactive light display, called “ARTS’TINATION,” was curated by Rhonda Dallas and sponsored by the Prince George’s Arts & Humanities Council.
The studio tours will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can find a schedule and a map of participating locations on the official website or at Tanglewood Works, Pyramid Atlantic, Studio 3807 or the Brentwood Arts Exchange.
