About Open Art Studio
This enthusiastic and talented group meets every Tuesday afternoon (1:00-3:00pm) on the 2nd floor and anyone interested is welcome. The group participates and contributes much to other Society events. They submit a large display to the annual art show at the Mulberry, as well as in the lounge on the easel and on the walls where space allows, showing their awesome talents. The art work on the walls for the annual Wine and Cheese event is also done by them and they donated beautiful art cards for prizes. This is a very social group and they celebrate whenever possible – birthdays, holidays, and other special occasions. Each month, an artist is featured by this group on the Bonsor 55+ website.
