Open Studios are a long part of Ox-Bow's history, where students on
campus proudly display the work they've produced. It will be an
exciting summer with demonstrations in courses like Wood Fired
Ceramics, Blacksmithing, and Metals Casting. Our Experiments in
Glassblowing class will certainly put on a captivating performance
during the Open Studio on July 27. On that same evening, visitors to
campus will also enjoy wandering the grounds, looking at installations
from the Site-Specific Sculpture course.

This summer, we are also pleased to announce a new feature to our Open
Studio events—Minstrels on the Meadow, where accomplished musicians
from the region and throughout the country will play eclectic styles
in-step with the school's tradition. Musicians ranging from ages 12 to
adult will play guitar, cello, viola and violin adding to the ambiance
of Ox-Bow's enchanting campus environment Visitors will be treated to
selections in classical, baroque, jazz and folk styles as they wander
from studio to studio.

As in year's past, Ox-Bow will continue to host the always thrilling
Friday Night Auctions, featuring work produced by students, faculty,
and staff. Be on the look out for deals on cutting edge artwork, and a
few surprise pieces, such as collaborative work, tables, and cutting
boards! All proceeds from the event benefit Ox-Bow's Studios. And…
it's a great opportunity to build an art collection! Ox-Bow invites
