OPEN DOORS CENTER FOR THE ARTS

Each month Open Doors will host an art event at the Weymouth Studio. The events are a way for us to recognize and help promote art in the community. These events are by donation and open to the public.  Donations go to providing opportunities for emerging and well-known artists, poets, musicians and dancers to showcase and share their work at Open Doors Weymouth Studio. 

 

At Open Doors we believe that our community is vibrant and thriving with artistic expression.  We invite you to share your art with us.  For more information on events and shows contact Gloria Monaghan, monaghang@wit.edu , or Marissa DeLisle, marissaopendoors@gmail.com
