The Sandy Spring Museum Artisans are scheduled to host their first open house from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m on Oct. 5th.
During the open houses, which will take place the first Saturday of each month, visitors are invited to see the museum’s resident artists at work. Many of the artists incorporate materials and inspiration from the museum’s collection in the creation of their pieces, and use both historic and modern techniques in their craft.
Resident artists include painter Eileen K. Crowe, Silversmith EunJu Lee, quilter Lauren Kingsland, enamelist Susana M. Garten, and five members of the Museum’s Potters’ Cooperative: Karen Blynn, Rikki Condon, Jean Fletcher, Robin Ziek, and Pamela Reid. There will also be live music, refreshments, and special sale items. The open houses are free.
The museum is located at 17901 Bentley Road. For more information about the museum or upcoming programs, call 301-774-0022 or go to www.sandyspringmuseum.org.
