There will be art, artists, beer and more art at the Jamaica Plain Arts Council Small Works Art on Tap fundraiser on March 10. The fundraiser is a project of the Jamaica Plain Arts Council (JPAC) and will feature small original art pieces from Jamaica Plain Open Studios (JPOS) artists. Works will be for sale at an affordable range of $20 to $50ish. This is a good event to check out local artists' work, meet up with friends, meet local artists, and support a good local art event. And admission is only $5 at the door with free food, and a cash bar.
The premiere annual arts event in one of Boston’s most eclectic neighborhoods, Jamaica Plain Open Studios (JPOS), is returning in 2019 for its 26th 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 and more. It runs from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. over the weekend of September 28 - 29, 2019. During JPOS, visitors can experience locally created art, clothing, jewelry, and home accessories, and can buy directly from the artists. JPOS artists include a mixture of newcomers, emerging student artists as well as more established artists, many with quite high profiles in their field. Included among the notable artists showing art this year are Nancy Marks and Remi Picó, who recently created their own installations for the new Egleston Square apartment complex located at 3200 Washington Street.
The 26th Annual Jamaica Plain Open Studios are this weekend at 40 different sites with 200 artists throughout the neighborhood. Historically, the free event was at residents artists studios, but through the years the event has also transitioned to have non-JP artists exhibit their work at non-studio locations like businesses and group shows at community spaces. All types of art will be on display: ceramics, drawing, fiber arts, furniture, glass, jewelry, metal, mixed media, mosaic, printmaking, soap, sculpture, wood, and more.
