Open Studios by Marian Stanton



The Umbrella is home to more than 60 working artists skilled in a variety of fine and applied arts including ceramics, glass, fiber arts, jewelry making, illustration, mixed-media, painting, photography, printmaking, illustration, sculpture, woodworking, writing and more. Since the organization's founding Studio Artists have been at the heart of making this facility a community asset and wellspring of creative activity. We maintain a vibrant, diverse and working community of artists by providing a space for them to belong, experiment and establish.

One of our studios is dedicated to hosting an Artist-in-Residence within the first five years of their career. Our Artists-in-Residence create new bodies of work to exhibit at the culmination of their residency and engage the greater Concord community in their practice. The Umbrella Artcubator awards studio space to visual artists for short term projects throughout the year, catalyzing new and experimental work.

Twice a year we open our doors to the public. Annually we share our process and what we've created over the last year during Open Studios. We then invite the wider community of local artisans to join us for our Winter Market.
