It is coming up on Spring Open Studios time at The Distillery and Studio 11 will, as always, have our doors open. It is my (obviously biased) opinion that this building has one of the best open studios events in Boston, maybe second only to Somerville and its massive city wide weekend. The building is interesting, the participating artists are all friendly (and talented) and the beer flows freely.

So, if you are in or around Boston, make the trip out to Southie on Sunday, June 5th and be sure to stop by Studio 11 and hang out for a while. Below is the official press release and a list of participating artists (that is sure to grow as the date gets closer). If you are on Facebook, click the link to the event page and let us know you are attending and invite your friends!

South Boston based artists and craftspeople at The Distillery and King Terminal open their doors for the annual Spring Open Studios event on Sunday, June 5th. Visitors can mingle with creative types, tour the unique environments in which various forms of artwork are produced, and make purchases directly from the artists. Dozens of traditional art studios, live/work lofts, creative small businesses, and corridors serving as pop-up galleries will be open to the public, highlighting some of Boston’s finest creative talent.

Spring Open Studios is free admission, rain or shine, Noon – 6pm. Get here by public transportation via the Red Line to Broadway and the #9 bus. Locations are within a few blocks from each other, and signage will clearly mark the path connecting the two. Ample street parking surrounds both properties, and there are plenty of places to secure bicycles.
