Visit ten Simsbury artists when they open their studios to the public on Saturday and Sunday, May 6 and 7 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm during the 8th Annual Simsbury Open Studios. Visitors will have the opportunity to see local artists working in their studios, ask questions about the creative process, and purchase original art from them. Art demonstrations are planned and the artists are looking forward to the participation of people of all ages.

This year’s group of artists include lampwork glass bead and sculpture maker Karyn de Ponte’-Sweezy; sculptor/potter Vicente Garcia; Bill Selig, jewelry designer of precious metals and gemstones; and painters Rita Bond, Catherine Elliot, Deborah Leonard, Claudia Ludovici, new-comer Linda Madin, Julia Parker Post, and Lori Racicot-Burrous.
Newest member Linda Madin, a former art school teacher, now devotes herself to her own artwork in pastel and oil. “My goal as an artist is to draw the viewer into the painting using color, light and composition to evoke a response as they reflect on what they see…”
