EFA OPEN STUDIOS - PRINTSHOP DEMOS
SATURDAY, OCT. 21 / 1pm - 6pm
EFA OPEN STUDIOS 2017 is an annual event of the EFA Studio Program that invites the public to come explore and interact with our member artists in the intimate setting of their studios. It is an opportunity to see the most recent works by artists at the site of their origin and to gain meaningful insight into their process of creation. The EFA Studio Program is a vibrant and diverse community of over 70 artists working in a wide range of media and artistic sensibilities. All are professional artists with an established studio practice and recognized career. Rarely can curators, collectors, dealers, artists, and art lovers see so many internationally recognized artists working under one roof in Midtown Manhattan.
