Greater Raleigh has a special treat for art lovers who are looking to make their visit to the area a little more creative.  Artspace in downtown Raleigh offers the public an opportunity to get up close and personal with artists as they work away at their masterpieces.  This unique open studio has an open invitation for everyone.

Artspace is a visual art center that was designed to host quality exhibitions, educational programs and an open studio environment for 35 studio artists.  Their entire vision is to make visual arts accessible to you, the public.  Here, everyone from young children to senior citizens can sculpt, paint or draw away in studio classes in the same building as local artists who have open studios in the space.

There are several galleries in Artspace that are venues for unique exhibits where you can display your art, observe others’ art and even take a special piece home to enjoy.  You’ll also find a gift shop that sells many of the resident artists’ work.  What better way to get in touch with the Greater Raleigh community and indulge your passion for art than to become involved in one of the many Artspace opportunities!
