Goggleworks Open House (Inspirational!)

Once a month, the Goggleworks in Reading has an open house. This gives visitors a chance to meet many of the artists in their studios. Also, many different shops and studios are performing demonstrations.

It is really a neat building where "the arts" have taken over. I would sum it up this way, give an abandoned old factory to a bunch of artists and great things will result. Art can be found in any and all medium, from photography, pottery, woodwork, sculptures, and painting (watercolor to oils, abstracts to scenics).

The gift shop and Bravo cafe were actively serving visitors, one selling unique gifts and the other delicious smelling food. The open, natural-lit galleries on the first floor are the epitome of the way to showcase artwork.

I took a picture of the leisure area, but particularly was interested in the board games that were under the coffee table. Upwords & Rummikub are a pair of my family's holiday favorites.
