"So far we have had about 15-17 [artists] and everyone takes a turn making the soup," said artist Ed Gray, Calumet Art Center executive director, of the recent turnout for the Open Studio. "Others make the homemade bread for the 5:30 to 6, and then everyone picks a spot and goes to work on their art."
