24th Annual Jamaica Plain Open Studios
September 23 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 11:00am, repeating until September 24, 2017
The premiere annual arts event in one of Boston’s most eclectic neighborhoods, Jamaica Plain Open Studios (JPOS), is returning in 2017 for its 24th year. Open Studios is an opportunity to take a rare public peek at some private spaces. The free event showcases the artwork of up to 200 artists at 40 sites including artists’ studios, the historic Eliot School, the Haffenreffer brewery complex and more. It runs from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. over the weekend of September 23 – 24, 2017.
During JPOS, visitors can experience locally created art, clothing, jewelry, and home accessories, and can buy directly from the artists. Our artists include a mixture of newcomers, emerging student artists as well as more established artists, many with quite high profiles in their field.
Free maps will be distributed at local JP businesses and are available at information booths during the event at the Brewery (284 Amory St.) and JP Licks (659 Center St.). Maps are also available for download from www.jpopenstudios.com. All Open Studios sites are MBTA accessible on the Orange Line at the Jackson Square, Stony Brook, Green Street and Forest Hills stations as well as several bus routes. More information is available by calling 617-855-5767 (JPOS).
The Jamaica Plain News calendar is open to all local organizations and businesses.
