Open Studios at the Mill

by Press Release
November 1, 2018

Holliston Mill Open Studios 2018 - Artists at the Holliston Mill, Water Street, will host their annual open studios event on Saturday and Sunday, November 3 and 4, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day.

Open House - In a preamble to the open studios weekend, a number of the Mill’s artists will be creating a temporary art installation on the nearby Holliston Rail Trail.

The Mill’s history as a shoe factory serves as inspiration for these artist-made “shoe-prises.” The public can expect the unexpected and a humorous vibe.

In the week prior to and during the open studios event, the trail will offer some unique photo opportunities with the hope that social media postings of photos will help spread the word about Hollison Mill Open Studios weekend. Look for “shoe-prises” starting at Blair Square and along the trail to the Exchange St. overpass.

Artists participating in the open studio's weekend at the Mill include resident artists, as well as local guest or former resident artists. The artists ply their crafts in a multitude of media including: oil, acrylic and watercolor paints, sculpture and mixed media pieces, mosaics, photography and digital media, drawing, printing, jewelry and textiles.

Participants hail from Holliston and surrounding towns, including Millis and Hopkinton.

Holliston native, artist and musician Erica Leigh (Stenquist) will be performing on Saturday, from 11-4.  Mill artist and cellist Sara Stalnaker of Holliston will perform 12-1 and 3-4 on Sunday.

Light refreshments will be served in studios throughout the building both days. A craft beer and wine tasting will cap off the weekend on Sunday from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m., hosted by Crafted of Holliston.

The Holliston Mill building, an 1800's shoe factory, is located at 24 Water St. Currently, the mill is home to several small businesses as well as artists’ studios. The structure remains largely as originally designed.

For more information visit the website: www.hollistonmill.com, ‘like’ the Holliston Mill Facebook page, or follow us on Twitter or Instagram. The event is free and open to the public. The historic building is not wheelchair accessible.
