Come celebrate visual creativity, fun and diversity through these wonderful expressions of art from our greater community of Huron County!

Artists’ Open Studio, Inc. was created for adults with developmental disabilities from Huron County. However, it is a place for aspiring artists of all abilities who enjoy sharing their creative spirits among other local artists. Each person works independently, yet with the support and encouragement from the group and AOS staff. Artists come from many walks of life with various skills to our uninstructed meetings. Painting & ceramic studio artists gather weekly at Christie Lane in Norwalk.
