Calling all art lovers! The 21st Annual Gowanus Open Studios is happening in Brooklyn this weekend. The free, annual weekend event is a time for artists in the Gowanus neighborhood (and slightly beyond) to open their studio doors and welcome the public to view their art, learn about the process of art-making, and get a glimpse of the life of artists.

Gowanus Open Studios, aka GOS, is an amazing art exhibit and so much more. It is an important opportunity for the Gowanus community to rally around the artists and creativity and energy that makes this area so vibrant.

Over the past 20 years, the GOS event has grown to over 300 artists with studios from Bergen Street to 18th Street, and from Court Street to 5th Avenue.


  • A Kick Off Party you won’t forget! October 20 at 7pm, at Brooklyn SolarWorks and The Cluster Gallery (200 6th Street, Brooklyn). Find all the details and RSVP HERE.

The exhibit will be open during all Gowanus Open Studios Hours (noon-6pm on both Saturday, Oct 21, and Sunday, October 22). This Garden Party is a special reception and party to celebrate GOS 2017 and the artists! All proceeds from the silent auction will benefit Arts Gowanus. RSVP HERE.
