Somerville Open Studios


  • Joy Street Studios (Studio #42) 86 Joy St Somerville, MA, 02143 United States

My studio, Joy Street Studios, will be participating in the annual Somerville Open Studios! If you haven't been to an open studios event then you are really missing out. This is one of the largest open studio events in the country with over 400 participating artists. All the studios in Somerville (including many home studios) will "open" their doors to the public for you to explore. Here's your chance to see fantastic artwork, learn about different artist's processes, visit the intimate spaces where they work, and fill up on free snacks and wine in the meanwhile. The event is so large that they coordinate a regular trolley schedule to take you between all the studios. Within my studio alone we have woodworkers, glass artists, printmakers, ceramicists, painters, bookbinders, photographers, jewelry makers, and more. My studiomate and I will have our door open (Studio#42) so you can come snoop around and ask us questions. The event is from 12-6pm on both Saturday and Sunday, and you'll need both days to see everything if that's your plan! We're opening up early on Friday night for a "sneak preview." Check out the SOS website to see who's participating :)
