Over 70 Brickbottom Artists Association members will show their work on November 17 & 18, 2018. It's our 31st annual open studios (and the 30th anniversary of our building and artists' association)! A block away, the artists of Joy Street Studios will open their doors as well, many offering live demonstrations as they create new work.Meet and support local artists!Our Open Studios event provides opportunities for visitors to talk with artists in their workspaces. Our artists work in every medium and format: sculpture, painting, photography, fiber… 2D, 3D, virtual, experiential, and everything in between. Visitors interested in starting or growing a collection of art by local artists will find work in every price range. Free performances throughout the buildings on both days add to the fun and offer more ways for visitors to engage with art and artists. In our Gallery, the “Directory Show” features one representative piece from each artist to help visitors prioritize their studio visits. Snacks on Site!Somerville’s The Biscuit will set up their pop-up shop in the Cannery lobby, providing low-cost, delectable pastries, sandwiches, coffee, and sodas to keep visitors well fueled for the day’s experiences with art.
