Dont miss these sure to be open Studios at the Torpedo Factory!!

So, as you may know, there are 82 studios. 6 galleries and tons of fantastic original works of art at the Torpedo Factory Art Center.

And, this Thursday, and every Second Thursday (year round!) this building stays open late to the public. This is such a huge part of Second Thursday Art Night that it's a must-see for anyone doing the gallery hop.

Although not all studios will be open, several definitely will.
Here's a list of some that will definitely be open (and honoring the 5% special discount for gallery hoppers):

Rosemary Covey - Studio # 224
Penny Barringer, Estelle Vernon, and Barbaro Eriksdotter Gendell - Studio # 201
Laura Edwards - Studio # 9
Lori Katz & Ruth Gowell - Studio # 8

There will be many many other studios open as well. Just ask the individual artists if they are participating in the promotion if you are interested in taking home some original art.
