We enthusiastically invite you to attend Gateway Project Spaces’ Spring Open Studios + Brunch, Saturday April 1st from noon - 5pm. The food will be warm, the beverages bubbly, and the art aplenty! Open Studios is a great opportunity to engage with artists and see what they are working on. There will also be multiple performances, interactive activities, and pop up installations by our onsite artists.

The Project For Empty Space gallery will be open and celebrating the final day of Zoe Buckman’s solo exhibition "Imprison Her Soft Hand." A panel discussion moderated by Tiana Webb Evans will take place at 3pm featuring the artist and participants from the GRAB BACK: PES Feminist Incubator Program.

The GRAB BACK Feminist Incubator Studio will be open for viewing. Feminists-in-Residence Sahana Ramakrishnan, Rosary Solimanto, Marilyn Gomez, and Anna Ogier-Bloomer are currently creating works that address a variety of issues including female safety, gender roles, ownership, and agency.
