Join in the festivities at Cotton Mill Arts Open Studio and Holiday Sale.
Cotton Mill Open Studio & Holiday Sale is celebrating its 20th anniversary promoting local artists, artisans, and entrepreneurs in the creative economy – starting with those who are a part of the Cotton Mill community. In recent years, the show has invited local artists and artisans to join the party and showcase their fine works as well. This event draws over 1000 visitors a day, and is promoted through public relations, advertising, and social media campaigns, as well as word of mouth from folks who make Cotton Mill Open Studio & Holiday Sale an annual tradition. This annual seasonal event celebrates the work and creations of artists, musicians, bakers, cooks, and craftspeople of the Cotton Mill, and many other talented, juried artists and artisans from Brattleboro and surrounding communities. This popular spirited, sensory extravaganza spread throughout the three floors of the Mill is sure to provide something for everyone.
Cotton Mill businesses invite you to visit their studios, while local artists invite you to visit their booths. Experience a variety of tasty culinary delights, exhilarating performances, music, and media presentations, and purchase artistic creations: iron art, pottery, functional wooden art, jewelry, cosmetics, sachets, woven goods, pet products, and did we mention culinary delights?? In addition, student artwork will be on display throughout the building.
In 2017 we hosted food and beverage “cafe” areas – one on each floor – for you to stop, rest, savor, and shop on. The response was so great that we will be doing something similar this year!
Cotton Mill Open Studio and Holiday Sale is a much anticipated annual social and shopping event for the whole family. The experience will collectively please your palate, tickle your senses and put a smile on your face.
FREE ADMISSION. Handicap accessible. PLUS THE BEST RAFFLE IN THE CITY!
