NEST Open Studios

COMING SPRING 2023!

Open Studios, art sale, hands-on activities, great family fun! The NEST Arts Factory is the longest-running working artists studio in Bridgeport, marking over 30 years. Meet the artists, tour their studios, and experience the variety of art and music created in this working studio space. The weekend program offers several hands-on, interactive programs; many are great family-fun activities. Artists’ work of all sizes and materials will be on sale, just in time for the holidays. Also view the work of guest artists, including the Black Rock Art Guild #36, the Bridgeport Portrait Project, and artists in the exhibit “Reconstructed/Deconstructed Still Lifes.” Activities taking place throughout the NEST include busker-style music, hands-on art activities like aromatherapy, mosaic, demos of the ‘lamp work’ technique of glass-blowing, and screenings from the Bridgeport Film Fest #28.
