The Art Junction was thrilled to exhibit work from the Artists’ Open Studio in the winter of 2012. 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.
Artists’ Open Studio sponsors an annual Art Exhibit – traditionally held the 3rd Friday of June at the Ernsthausen Performing Arts Center Gallery, 350 Shady Lane Dr, Norwalk. Artwork may be purchased at our shows or from our displays at Christie Lane with profits going directly to the artists. AOS also creates products for sale to purchase art supplies for the artists from Christie Lane. Purchases of handmade ceramic tile, recycled glass jewelry, note cards, stationary, and custom printing help to support AOS.
A painting by Lynda Stoneham who had a one-woman exhibit at the Art Junction in 2011 and has been involved in group exhibits with us as well. Lynda is an artist/teacher, the managing director of Artists’ Open Studio, Inc., and a member of the Firelands Area Art League. Her work is featured at Hidden Creek Pottery in Milan, Ohio and in many
private collections. Lynda’s art reveals an insatiable appetite for making visual narratives of life around her!
