Roslindale Open Studios is coming up on Saturday and Sunday, November 7th and 8th. This means that, once again, the open studios season in Boston is in full swing. If you are still on the fence about going to an open studios event or can’t decide which one, Roslindale is an excellent pick. If you’ve never been to Roslindale Open Studios, you’re in for a treat. This is two days of art celebration with a chance to meet and talk with dozens of local painters, potters, photographers, designers, and ever so much more. Explore our super-sweet neighborhood at your own pace and enjoy all Rozzie has to offer. Get around by car, bike, or on foot with our handy map and guide. You can pick up a map at any of the group sites - there’s a map to find maps here (a pushpin icon indicates a group site).
Our group sites are concentrated closely around Roslindale Square where there happen to be several lovely coffee shops and restaurants. For the walkers out there we have interesting corners of our neighborhood to discover on foot. There is even a bike tour for the event heading out on Saturday, meeting at Adams Park at 11 a.m. Not to mention there will be live music, art activities for kids, and a home studio bingo game ending in a raffle of some seriously sweet prizes.
I’ll be at the Boston School of Modern Languages, right beside the Roslindale Village Commuter Rail parking lot (free parking there on Sunday!) with several other artists. This will be my biggest studio sale of the year since I have virtually no wall space left at home! I’ll have everything from tiny, luscious oil paintings up to grand mantel-worthy works in watermedia and oil paint. I will have ready-to-frame matted prints of my more popular works and greeting cards as well. On top of that I’m taking 10% off everything. Err-thing. Everything-everything. All of it!Rebecca M. Fullerton at Roslindale Open Studios, November 7-8, 2015, from 11am - 5pm both days.My "White Mountain Minis" originals and prints will be available at Roslindale Open Studios, November 7-8, 2015, from 11am - 5pm both days.
With dozens of artists to see the day can be daunting. Take your time. Wander. If the weather is good stroll our streets and soak in some sun. When you do visit a group studio or someone’s home studio talk with us! We artists love to answer questions about our art. We’re not here to make a high-pressure sale and we’re happy to see you walk through the door. I recently received a piece from an artist I’ve known for years. My husband and I immediately found a place on our crowded walls to hang it, and it delights me to no end. Not only do I love the piece, but it’s made more special because I know the person who created it. Get to know us. You may find that the artist’s story attracts to you to their work even more.
I hope you can make it to Roslindale Open Studios, our neighborhood’s celebration of arts! Happy shopping!
