October 22 and 23, more than 90 artists will welcome the public into their studios throughout Roslindale. Now in its 12th year, Roslindale Open Studios (ROS) is a free, exciting, family-friendly community event that features fine art and crafts available to view and purchase, such as painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, woodworking, textiles, jewelry, and mixed-media. Artists will showcase their work in 30 locations, including group
sites, businesses, and home studios.
In addition to many artists showing their work in home-based studios, ROS hosts three group locations with 10-20
artists exhibiting in each:
- Boston School of Modern Languages, 814 South Street
- Roslindale Congregational Church, 25 Cummins Highway
- Roslindale House, 120 Poplar Street
Roslindale Open Studios is different from other similar events around Boston because exhibiting artists are in close proximity to each other. This makes it easy for visitors to walk from one studio to the next. In addition to the art on display, visitors can experience the popular Roslindale Village Main Street Farmers’ Market (Saturday only) and other activities:
- See a preview of home studio artists’ work at the Home Studio Artists Gallery at Roslindale House: Saturday and Sunday, 11AM-5PM
