This weekend, September 17th and 18th is the 25th anniversary of Boston's South End Open Studios. The event runs from 11am to 6pm each day and features the work of more than 200 established and emerging artists creating in a wide variety of media including painting, sculpture, photography, ceramics, glass and fiber. The public is welcomed into these artist studios to meet the artists, talk about their work, and purchase art directly from those who create it.

A number of artists will also be doing In-Studio demonstrations throughout the event including photography, paper quilts, and letterpress printing, and I will be doing paper quilting, and encaustic collage demonstrations in my studio as well.

While some of the studios in the South End are open to the public at other times during the year, the South End Open Studios is the only time when ALL of the major art buildings in the South End are open. South End Open Studios is a unique opportunity 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 and the lofts were built and brownstones were gentrified.

Printed guides featuring details on the participating artists and a map with all studio locations will be available at two information tables located at the Boston Center For The Arts, 539 Tremont Street, and at the corner of Wareham and Harrison Streets.

Come visit my studio at 35 Wareham Street, on the 2nd floor, and you can see a preview of my space on the United South End Artists website. See you this weekend!
