“Artists at Work” in the Artist Enclave of Historic Kenwood
Sat & Sun – March 19th & 20th, 2022 – 10am to 5pm
This tour was free, self-guided, and open to the public.
Over a sunny weekend, we welcomed almost 1,000 visitors into our studios, homes, and gardens in a celebration of art and our beloved Historic Kenwood neighborhood.
We want to thank all our volunteers, sponsors, visitors, friends, family, neighbors and fellow artists for a wonderful two days of connecting with one another, building community, talking about art, gardening, Kenwood – and so much more. New neighbors were met, friendships were built, compliments and encouragements were exchanged – and a lot of of art was purchased.
Thank you all for making this a fabulous event and for enriching our community by supporting artists to create, live, and even “make a living” in a community that encourages the arts and artists.
