South Boston Open Studios: Oct 31 & Nov 1, 2009

Artists and craftspeople of South Boston will open their doors to the public Saturday and Sunday, October 31st and November 1st, for the annual South Boston Open Studios event. Visitors will be able to talk to and make purchases directly from the artists while touring the creative environments in which the artwork is produced. This weekend-long affair also provides a great opportunity to sample many of historic South Boston’s restaurants, cafes, pubs, and retail shops.

Each year, over six-hundred guests get an intimate glimpse into studios as they tour the unique warehouse and loft-style spaces. More than 65 artists will be on hand for questions and conversations as they showcase numerous disciplines, including: sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking, installation, photography, video, jewelry, ceramics, woodworking, fabric and performance art. Participating organizations and galleries include The Distillery (which offers three galleries and over 50 artists) located at 516 East 2nd Street, King Terminal at 110 K Street & 570 E 1st Street, and Norman Crump Studio at 793 East Sixth Street.

The event is free to the public, rain or shine, noon to 6pm each day. Public transportation is easy, take the Red Line to the Broadway stop and walk East, or take the #7 City Point bus from South Station to Elkins St. All locations are within walking distance of each other and a map of the neighboring venues is available on the official event website: southbostonopenstudios.orgor help spread the word by joining the event page on Facebook.
