This year, Columbia Open Studios welcomes 70 participating artists to the lineup. Art forms range from mixed-media artwork, ceramics, photography, hand-blown glass work, and more. Take a behind the scenes look at the creation and techniques behind varying art forms, and chat with artists about their materials, backgrounds, and inspirations.
