This year Greenpoint Open Studios promises once again to be a spectacularly art-filled weekend on June 2nd & 3rd, with more than 400 local artists opening up their studios to the public — plus parties, special events and guided tours of artist studios. Greenpoint Open Studios is free and open to the public all weekend (from 12pm-6pm each day), but if you want to get sone one-on-one time with select local artists and have a little help navigating the hundreds of studios, a guided tour is the best way to go. The tours, hosted by Greenpointers art writer Madeline Ehrlich and former art dealer turned realtor Lynn Del Sol, will help you get up close and personal with participating artists and their work, learn about their craft first-hand and ask questions about their practice.

Here’s a rundown of all the tours offered this weekend. Registration is $20, and you can buy tickets in advance or pay cash on-site. The tours include a stop at a local bar with one FREE BEER per participant!
