Join us for a night in the private studios of our working artists June 1, 2017 from 5:00-9:00 p.m.*

Meet with painters, sculptures, photographers, jewelers, wearable fiber and textile artists, glass blowers, furniture makers, pottery/ceramic artists and more. First Thursday in the Arts District provides an excellent opportunity for conversation with the artists, a chance to find something special for your home or office or to find unique gifts for the ones you love.

We will be kicking off the summer with root beer floats. Meet us at the Main Entrance and pick up your complimentary root beer float.

Featured Artist

Dyan Padgett

Dyan Padgett

Seeking to portray the extraordinary in the ordinary, Dyan strives to find beauty and significance in things that have often lost their relevance in modern society. Through thoughtful observation and the application of time-tested skills and techniques, her goal is to honestly depict the essential of each subject – not the accidental. Dyan’s work combines the fine drawing & design of the European Academic tradition with the observed color values of the American Boston tradition. Still life is her genre of choice. However, she also enjoys portraiture and landscape work. Dyan’s work can be found in shows and private collections throughout the US.
