This November the Waltham Mills Artists Association (WMAA) will hold its 41st annual Open Studios weekend. More than 60 artists will open the doors of their workspaces to over 2000 visitors to display and sell their work. The free event features pieces by established and emerging artists from Waltham Mills Artist Association, Lincoln Studios and Metalwerx. Work ranges from painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture to jewelry, textiles, glass, photography, woodworking, film and more.
