5 Studios to Visit During ROVE Art Walk

Attending open studio events like ROVE is one of the best ways to discover local artists that you may not have been able to find otherwise. It’s also a great feeling when purchasing a new piece directly from the artist, that all of the money you just spent will go directly towards supporting them.

Free for the public to attend as they wish, the next edition of ROVE is set for this Friday, May 27th from 6-10pm. Here we highlighted five spaces on the art walk that you definitely can’t miss out on.
