Somerville Open Studios 2016!

It's here! The 18th annual Somerville Open Studios.
Over 350 Somerville artists are opening their studios and workshops to the public this weekend -- Saturday, April 30, and Sunday, May 1, from noon to 6 pm.

All SOS events and locations are entirely free. There's no charge. There's no catch. Just come and be part of the community!

Not sure where to begin? Start your visit at our Artists' Choice Show at the Somerville Museum, which opens one hour earlier than the rest of SOS.

After open studios end on Sunday, come to Bantam Cider for an after-party from 6 to 8:30 pm.

SOS: See Our Shows!


Artists' Choice Show at Somerville Museum.

The Artists' Choice Show, at the Somerville Museum, is a great place to survey the variety of art that SOS has to offer. Every participating SOS artist was invited to submit one work to this exhibit.

The Artists' Choice show is open Thursday 2-7 pm, Friday 2-9 pm, Saturday and Sunday 11 am - 6 pm. Come here first to plan out your SOS weekend.


Inside-OUT show at CVS.

At the Inside-OUT Gallery, in the windows of CVS in Davis Square, nine SOS artists are displaying work on the theme of "Greetings from Somerville / Wish You Were Here."


SOS Volunteer Show at Diesel Cafe.

The SOS Volunteer Show fills the walls of Davis Square's Diesel Cafe with work by the many people who make SOS happen each year. Diesel is open until 11 pm every night.

The SOS Kids' Art Show features work by Somerville's youngest artists. See it at Arts at the Armory Cafe, 191 Highland Ave.
