South Boston Open Studios This Weekend

South Boston Open Studios
November 1st and 2nd, 2008
Noon - 6pm each day
Free to the Public

Artists and craftspeople of South Boston will open their doors to the public Saturday and Sunday, November 1st and 2nd, 2008 as part of the annual South Boston Open Studios event. Visitors will be able to talk to and make purchases directly from the artists and visit the creative environments in which the artwork is produced. The weekend-long event also provides a great opportunity to sample many of this historic neighborhood's restaurants, cafes, pubs, and retail shops.

Numerous disciplines will be represented throughout the dozens of participants, including: sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking, installation, photography, video, jewelry, ceramics, woodworking, fabric and performance art. Much of the work will be in-process and the artists will be on hand for questions and conversations. Participating organizations and galleries include the SBAA (South Boston Arts Association), which will be exhibiting in the Laboure Center at 275 West Broadway, The Distillery (which will showcase three galleries and over 50 artists) located at 516 East 2nd Street, King Terminal at 110 K 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 Broadway.
