Get the first look at some of the works in the citywide exhibit “FotoFest 2014 Biennial — Contemporary Arab Photographic Art” at this month’s Spring Street Studios Second Saturdays Open Studios. “FotoFest will be in the building,” Sara Jackson, spokesperson for the studios, tells us. “It doesn’t officially start until [March 15], but folks can get a sneak peek at the pieces that will be throughout all three of our buildings.” (The monthly Open Studios event includes Spring Street Studios’ sister buildings, Winter Street Studios and Silver Street Studios.) “About 20 or 30 studios will be open in each building,” says Jackson. “ A lot of people are intimidated by a gallery setting. This is a great chance for people to see artists and their work in a casual setting, to meet the artists and develop a relationship. This is a unique opportunity to get gallery-quality and museum-quality pieces at [non‑gallery prices].” Jackson estimates that prices for work on sale during the open house will be between $50 and $2,500.
