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.
