• Somerville Open Studios 2020

    Studio Event Canceled for 2020
    Visit our Artists' Profiles and our YouTube Channel

    Somerville Open Studios is a citywide art event, where hundreds of artists open their studios and invite the public in to see their art. Somerville Open Studios 2020 did not take place in person on May 2 and 3. This was not an easy decision, but health concerns due to COVID-19 and difficulties in rescheduling mean that for 2020, SOS is a virtual event.

    Meet The Artist Series

    Meet some of our member artists on Youtube . Follow them on social media (click the "show more" link on the youtube page to get more info) As always, we invite visitors to check out out the art on our members' profile pages.
