“The studios in the RAD (River Arts District) house many local artists all working to make art for a living. There you'll find ceramics, glass, wood, clothing, paintings, and virtually any other medium you can think of. Studio hours vary, so expect some random openings/closings unless you're here for one of the bi-annual gallery crawls. ”
