The Windsor Art Center Studios has eight studio spaces. Located at 35 Central St. in the center of historic Windsor, CT, Windsor Station was originally built in 1870 as the Hartford & New Haven Railroad Depot and rebuilt to its original Victorian architecture by the Town of Windsor, Amtrak and the Greater Hartford Transit District in 1988, the same year it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. For more information, please call 860-688-2528 or email info@windsorartcenter.org.

Artists at Windsor Art Center Studios open their doors for visitors on select Saturdays. This is a wonderful opportunity to shop, meet the artists, and see their creative processes! Studio artists include: Catherine Doocy, a painter who has shown her work all over New England and beyond; LeaAnn Cogswell, a sculptor who has won national awards for her work; Andres Chaparro, a painter whose celebrated work is inspired by jazz; Joe Sam, a mixed media artist using materials in the state in which they were found; Elizabeth Gibbs, writer and certified yoga therapist teacher; and Che’La’Mora, an artist, writer and therapist.

The former freight house, also restored, is located across the tracks and is the home of the Windsor Art Center. While travelers may still board trains for Springfield, Hartford and New York from the exterior platform, the updated interior provides space for artists to work and the opportunity to bounce creative ideas off other artists.
