United South End Artists, Inc. presents South End Open Studios on Saturday and Sunday, September 20-21 from 11:00am to 6:00pm each day.
South End Open Studios is celebrating its 28th anniversary this year. The event, begun by a small group of artists, has grown to encompass 12 major buildings and numerous smaller spaces throughout the South End. Over the last few years, some of Boston’s most noted galleries have also made the South End their home.
The free event showcases the works of more than 200 established and emerging artists creating art in a wide variety of media including painting, sculpture, photography, ceramics, glass and fiber. The public is welcomed into their studios and galleries to meet the artists, talk about the art and purchase art directly from the artists. A number of artists will also be doing In-Studio demonstrations throughout the event including photography, paper quilts, and letterpress printing.
While some of the studios in the South End are open to the public at other times during the year, South End Open Studios is the only time when all of the major art buildings in the South End are open to the public. South End Open Studios is your unique chance to explore the roots of the modern South End and to salute the artists who moved to the neighborhood long before the warehouses were renovated, the lofts were built and the brownstones were gentrified. In many ways it was the energy of the artists that has created what today is one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the city.
Printed guides featuring details on the artists and a map with all studio locations included will be available at the two South End Open Studios Information Tables located at the Boston Center For The Arts, 539 Tremont Street and at the corner of Wareham and Harrison.
South End Open Studios is free to the public. A Shuttle Bus will run during the event.
