Open Studios


Button Factory Open Studios

Saturday, December 2, 2017
From 10:00-5:00
With a Friday Preview from 5-8

The Open Studios in 2017 will be in a somewhat different format from previous years. It will only be happening on Saturday, but still before the Portsmouth holiday parade.

Also, it will differ in that there will not be artists from outside the building set up in the hallways. The Portsmouth Fire Department has become more cautious in what it will permit. For those who disliked the crowds in the halls, this will be an improvement. What will be the same will be a selection of some of the best artists on the Seacoast welcoming you into their studios.

Downloadable publicity photographs of Button Factory artists’ work are available on request. 

Saturday, December 2,  Hours 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM

How to get there: The Button Factory is located on Islington Street in Portsmouth, across from Plaza 800 and the Hannaford Supermarket (formerly Pic 'n' Pay) Bank of America, and COAST bus stop, only a short drive from the Portsmouth Traffic Circle.
