First Saturday Open Studios

On many First Saturdays of the month (see dates →) from 12 to 4 pm, FVAC artists open their studios along the boardwalk to share what goes on behind the colorful doors of the Farmington Valley Arts Center. There are two floors of studios to explore. Step into the world of painters, illustrators, potters, jewelers, photographers, fiber artists, a filmmaker or furniture craftsman and be swept away by their unique creations!
