About Waltham Open Studios

In 1978, just a couple years after artists began working in the historic Waltham Mills buildings, they opened their work spaces to the public for one weekend. Visitors appreciated behind-the-scenes views and opportunities to purchase art directly from the creators.

As Waltham’s creative community grew, artists from Lincoln Studios and Metalwerx joined in the annual celebration held each first weekend of November. Year after year, Waltham Open Studios has invited the public to view work by over 80 artists working in all kinds of media, all conveniently located in three buildings within two blocks of each other in downtown Waltham.

In 2020, the virtual nature of Open Studios created a perfect opportunity for additional artists who live and/or work in Waltham to share their work and perspectives.

The celebration grows larger, but the goals remain the same: To visit art where it’s made and to create opportunities for artists to sell their work.

Waltham Open Studios is a free community event that exists thanks to the donations of the artists and the business and community sponsors.
