SoWa Art Walk

I will have artwork on display this weekend in the South End for the annual South End Open Studios. I will be one of the 150 guest artists in the group space at 460 Harrison Avenue in the South End in Boston. This will be the first time that I'm participating in an event like this, so it should be a lot of fun. Of course, the weather may not cooperate with us, but it is spring in New England. In the past, I've attended the open studios in the South End, and that has been a lot of fun. Now it should be a new experience, since I will be on the other end. I plan to have a lot of my artwork (both old and new) this weekend, so I look forward to seeing you there. Nonetheless, this may make my etsy shop seem rather empty, but all of the unsold artwork shall all return once the event is over.

SoWa ART Walk
The SoWa Art Walk is held every spring in the SoWa (South of Washington Street) neighborhood in Boston’s South End. A former mill building district where pianos, canned goods, shoes and other merchandise were made in the 19th century, the district has been home to artists’ studios carved out of the old factories for the last fifty years. Today, the artists have been joined by art galleries, creative businesses, cutting edge restaurants and the recent boom in residential loft buildings.

The SoWa Art Walk takes place in late May each year and is a weekend-long standing invitation to visit the artists in their studios. This year, the SoWa Art Walk will occur on Saturday and Sunday May 17-18, 2008 from 11:00am to 6:00pm. Creative stores, cafes, boutiques and some of the city’s finest restaurants take part in the SoWa Art Walk by opening their doors all weekend, hosting artists who display on their walls and offering special event discounts. The SoWa Open Market, an open-air venue for artists, craftsmen, collectioners, farmstands and other vendors makes its seasonal debut each year in tandem with the SoWa Art Walk. www.southendopenmarket.com

Come stroll through one of Boston’s most vibrant and creative neighborhoods on a spring weekend and you’ll be sure to find a painting, original design/make clothing, a set of antique china … or brunch and plenty of atmosphere!
