Welcome to the Official Website of the Loft Artists Association, also known as the LAA.

Open Studios

The Loft Artists Association celebrates another event-filled year of “art-meets-life” in the South End with “Open Studios 2016” at 575 Pacific St. in Stamford on Fri. Nov. 11, 6 to 9 PM, Sat. Nov. 12 and Sun. Nov. 13, Noon to 5 pm

“Our annual weekend-long exhibition highlights the LAA’s creativity in this growing area of Stamford, bringing art, culture, and interactive collaboration, not only to the South End population, but to the entire community,” President Ellen Gordon says. “This is a rare opportunity for art lovers, collectors, and appreciators to see the work of over 40 award-winning artists in one location.”

The Loft Artists pioneered the South End of Stamford, setting up an artist colony in the former Yale & Towne Factory, now the home of contemporary apartments. They produced happenings, performances, tours and lectures that attracted thousands of people from the tri-state area. They held workshops, gave demonstrations and opened their doors, inviting the community to see the creative process first hand. Now, 39 years later, they continue their great outreach tradition and invite the public to what has become known as one of Stamford’s greatest art experiences.

The Loft Artists Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to building connections within Fairfield County’s visual arts community and introducing the general public to artists and their work. Their grassroots events attract thousands of visitors and have been recognized by funding agencies, including the Connecticut Commission on the Arts, corporate and private sponsors, the City of Stamford and by visitors who return year after year. Admission and parking are free. (A donation is suggested.) Handicapped access is available on Saturday.

For directions and more information call 203-247-2027. Supported by The City Arts Partnership Program – City of Stamford, David Martin, Mayor. Sponsored in part by Aghabumi Best of Bali, Louis J. Kuriansky Foundation, Bob and Pat Phillips, and Wagner Instruments.
