The Artists of Griffin Studios

 First Saturday Artist's Reception

 February 2nd 5:00-8:00pm

Showcasing the Artists of Griffin Studios, selected works from the invited artists will be on exhibit at 505 North. 

Ceramics, sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking, glass, and video pieces can be viewed from the 15 artists, 

all in one place! 

Visitors can walk right across 5th street to visit artists in their studios on First Saturday. 

The exhibit runs weekends all month at 505 North, so visitors to Frederick may come see artists’ selections and get to know Griffin artists aside from first Saturday receptions.. and plan studio visits for first Saturday in March!  



    We offer classes and workshops 

taught by established, accomplished 

local artists and educators.  

Our classes  workshops are also great for mature teen home schoolers, college-bound student portfolios, quality time with a friend or partner, team-building, and gift certificates!

With our broad network of artists and artisans we can make art happen for you! 



We invite artists to challenge themselves to create new works -or- perhaps the theme already happens to be a perfect match for existing works? 

Our community calls for art always yield ecclectic exhibitions that include local artists from a wide range of backgrounds and experience.


Did you know that most of the artists featured in duo or small group exhibits at 505 North we have met through their participation in one or more of our calls for art? 

Themes for 2019-2020 are in the works..

Theme titles will be linked to detailed submission forms once available. Submission deadlines and exhibit months will be finalized at that time.
