Boston’s South End Hosts The 33rd Annual Open Studios Event

Over 200 Artists on hand to kick-off Boston’s Fall Open Studios Season

September 21st and 22nd, 2019


Boston, MA — United South End Artists, Inc. presents South End Open Studios on Saturday and Sunday, September 21 and 22 from 11:00am to 6:00pm each day.  

South End Open Studios is celebrating its 33rd anniversary this year.  The event, begun by a small group of artists, has grown to encompass 6 major buildings. Over the last few years, some of Bostons most noted galleries have also made the South End their home.  

This 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 as well.

Sponsored by Harken Wine this year, there will be free wine tasting in the courtyard of 46 Waltham all weekend long.

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 maps with all studio locations will be available at the two South End Open Studios Information Tables located at the Boston Center For The Arts, 551 Tremont Street and at the Info Booth in the SOWA open market. Maps can also be viewed and downloaded at, along with details about all of the participating artists.

South End Open Studios is free and open to the public.
