Grand Opening Show

Everyone in our community who has had a hand in bringing Homewood Studios to life...from the architects of the original plan, through the children who came in and drew on the walls before demolition, to the many people who stopped by to lend us support in the building process, to the construction crew, to city leaders and community people who believed in the vision...has been invited to submit a piece of their own art work to this grand opening show. It is not a juried show. All work submitted will be displayed.

Questions about being involved in this show may be addressed to artshow@homewoodstudios.com

In addition, the first annual Homewood Arts Festival took place on Saturday, October 2, 1999, in the Sheridan Avenue Community Garden and Park. Two hundred people from the neighborhood gathered to hear musicians and poets, and about forty five people...children and adults...created hand made books with the help of community artists Janice Lee Porter (artist), Anthony Porter (writer) and George Roberts (book binder). These hand made books, in both concertina and Japanese style bindings, will also be on display. Two neighborhood photographers, Bill Cottman and Earcie Allen, documented the event and their photographs will be part of this gallery presentation.
