Somerville Open Studios occurs the first weekend in May (This year, it’s April 30-May 1, 2022). It’s a chance for the hundreds of artists living and working in Somerville to open their homes, studios or participate in group shows and marketplaces. SOS, as it’s affectionately known, had to be cancelled in 2020 and ran as a limited, mostly online event in 2021. This spring, the it returns with 300+ artists sharing open studios and outside markets and open backyards.
The Beyond the Pattern fashion show, a lively and popular Open Studios event that I participated in in 2018 and 2019 was cancelled during 2020 and 2021. We’d hoped to have a static display at Bow Market this year, but that was also cancelled. Alas, the spiritual garment I made to show at that display will have to wait. Weather permitting (and it looks like it’s going to be a nice weekend), I will have samples and some work to share on my porch. See the SOS map and calendar for more details about the artists.
