Event General Information:

D. M. Gremlin Studios Open House events are no-cost, friendlygatherings of local artists, friends, and community members. Each event offers studio tours, open photo shooting, industry networking, portfolio sharing, and good company and conversation in a relaxed, professional studio environment.

For those who wish to visit in person prior to booking the studio, the Open House events provide the designated opportunity for free tours of our photography and recording studio facilities. Open House allows first-time and returning guests to experience D. M. Gremlin Studios not just as a collection of equipment and rooms, but as a living creative space with its potentials being demonstrated in action.

Activities within the Open House vary from event to event, but have included art exhibitions, costume themes, bodypainting, photography workshops, production photo shoots, live music performances, potluck barbeques, fire performances, and more.

Please feel free to bring any food or beverages (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) of your choice. There are also several restaurants and stores on our block for convenient food and drink runs.
