Holliston Mill Open Studios 2017

Artists at the Holliston Mill will host their annual Open Studios event on Saturday and Sunday, November 4 and 5, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day

Artists participating in the open studios 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, photography and digital media, drawing, printing, jewelry and textiles.

Participants hail from Holliston and surrounding towns including Millis, Medfield, Sherborn, Hopkinton, Framingham, Canton and Newton.

Holliston native, musician and artist Erica Leigh Stenquist will be performing on Saturday, from 11-2.  Mill artist and cellist Sara Stalnaker, also of Holliston, will perform both days, off and on throughout the event.

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, located at 24 Water St., was built in the late 1800’s for use as a shoe factory. Currently, the mill is home to several small businesses as well as artists’ studios. The structure remains largely as originally designed.
