On Sunday, February 5 from 3-5 p.m., Art Lab Everett, which is located at 132 Bucknam St. (enter at the gate on Locust Street), will host an Open House featuring the artwork of Everett resident Jay Guanaka. Guanaka has lived in Everett for the past 16 years and will soon graduate from Lesley University School of Art and Design. Guanaka’s work is on display in the windows of the Art Lab and downstairs in the Art Lab itself.
Take a tour of the Art Lab, learn about upcoming workshops and classes and gather together with people interested in all things art. A few art projects will be available for you to try – no experience necessary. As Sioux Gerow, one of the Art Lab teachers always says, anyone can do art. Find out for yourself by dropping by on Sunday, February 5 from 3-5 p.m.
Open Houses are a chance to relax with members of Art Lab’s community and learn about what is available at Art Lab Everett. The featured artist will be present to talk about her work and some art materials will be available to try out.
