The Second Saturday in November! Art lovers from around the region are invited to take a self-guided tour of the capital city’s artist studios, gallery spaces, grass roots art collectives, workshops, public art, and a host of breathtaking creative spaces largely unknown to the public. Special Art All Day trolley and guided bicycle tours will also take place. Over 65 artists will participate, at open studios and creative venues throughout the city. This is an opportunity to not only see art, but to also talk to the artist about his or her creative process, watch them work, and see their workspace. Artworks is proud to offer an event that showcases the remarkable creative diversity of Trenton.” How does it all work? Art All Day is FREE to attend and open to the public. The self-guided tour begins at Artworks Trenton (19 Everett Alley, Trenton, NJ), where guests can pick up a map/brochure and view a group exhibit featuring participating artists on the tour. Following the self-guided tour attendees are invited back to Artworks’ expansive gallery space for a celebratory reception. Free parking is available all day and evening at Artworks, 19 Everett Alley, Trenton (off South Stockton Street, across from NJ Motor Vehicle Commission building) Keep up with the latest news!
