Alanna Nelson Fiber Art MOST Open StudiosMelrose, Massachusetts (my fair town) has a vibrant art community and festival. We even have a community arts calendar. As a member of the Cultural Council for six years, my appreciation of the reality and possibilities grew. So when Demi Dubois asked me if I thought we could put together an Open Studio Tour in six weeks, it didn’t take for me to respond, “Yes.”

In three weeks, with help from Ellen Rolli and Adrian Johnston, she gathered many artists, a logo so I’m whipping together a web site for the first Melrose Open Studio Tour.

You heard it here first!

I’m running upstairs to get my fiber den ready for visitors. See you there?
