The Astoria Visual Arts Gallery will be hosting a group exhibition featuring artworks by AOST participants. The exhibit will open during Artwalk, Saturday, July 10 from 12-8 pm and will be up through August 8. The AVA Gallery is located at 1000 Duane and is open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 12-4.

This year 55 artists across Astoria open their studios to the general public for a self-guided adventure filled with art, great conversation, and new friends. Artists welcome the public into their studios – all ages and physical abilities – to let them see where, how, and why they make art. Artists share their artistic spaces, talk about techniques learned over years of practice, and the public gets to meet the makers and purchase artwork directly from the source.

Connections are made that will last a lifetime.
