Stamford, CT - The Loft Artists Association celebrates its 36th year of “art-meets-life” in the South End by inviting the public to its annual Open Studios event. The festivities begin on Friday October 24th from 6 to 9 PM with a reception — courtesy of Center Street Public House, Darien CT — and continues on Saturday, October 25th 2 to 7 PM and Sunday, October 26th 12 to 5 pm.

“This year’s weekend-long exhibition will see a tremendous variety of art on display in individual studios as well as in both the East and West Galleries, with over 40 artists sharing their work and process,” president Ellen Gordon states. “Videos will demonstrate the success of our community art workshops and our ongoing role as one of the major cultural and artistic ‘anchors’ of the South End.”

The group is especially pleased to welcome musician Kathy Muir to the LAA, Gordon adds. “She has a distinctive voice and lyrical style that combines acoustic and pop influences infused with a hint of jazz. Kathy brings a unique spectrum of songs to the stage.”

The Loft Artists pioneered the changing face of Stamford’s South End 36 years ago, setting up an artist colony in the old Yale & Towne Factory that now boasts contemporary apartments. Over the years they produced happenings, performances, tours and lectures that have attracted thousands of people from the tri-state area. They held workshops, gave demonstrations and opened their doors, inviting the community to see the creative process first hand. This year marks a continuation of that great outreach tradition and the public is invited to what has become known as one of Stamford’s great art experiences:

“OPEN STUDIOS 2014”

Friday October 24 - 6 to 9 PM
Saturday October 25 - 2 to 7 PM
Sunday October 26 - 12 to 5 PM

The Loft Artists Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to building connections within Fairfield County’s visual arts community and exposing the general public to artists and their work. Their grassroots events have been recognized by funding agencies, including The City Arts Partnership Program – City of Stamford, David Martin, Mayor; the Connecticut Commission on the Arts; corporate and private sponsors and by visitors who return year after year.

Admission and parking are free. (A donation is suggested.) Handicapped access is available on Saturday and Sunday.
