“With so many artists in town, why doesn’t Melrose have an open studios event?”

It didn’t take long for Demi Dubois’s idea to gain momentum! In early October, Demi, a former chair of the Melrose Cultural Council met with contemporary painter Ellen Rolli and fiber artist Alanna Nelson to discuss the logistics and possibilities of a day when Melrose artists would give the public a peek at their workspaces. Quickly, artists and businesses stepped up to participate and the gears got in motion.

Organization for the first Melrose Open Studio Tour (MOST) is underway. MOST will be held on Sunday, December 3, 2017, the day after the annual Home for the Holidays in Melrose.

Stay tuned for details regarding who will participate – in what we hope will become an annual event on the Melrose cultural calendar.
