As if I really need to convince you that Roslindale is an amazing place to work, play and live, another great event is coming up the first weekend in November: Roslindale Open Studios. The Roslindale community is always coming up with ways to bring people together to experience something extraordinary, and ROS is no exception. This event is a perfect way to get acquainted with people and places, especially if you’re new to the area or are considering buying a home in Roslindale in the near future.
Roslindale Open Studios is a weekend event taking place on Saturday, November 5th and Sunday, November 6th where local artists show off their talent and connect with each other and the public. This year, over 113 artists will be showcasing their work, with items ranging from jewelry to mixed media photography to textiles. The artists will have their pieces for sale which gives you the opportunity to stimulate the local economy while sneaking in some early holiday shopping. Remember: the first official shopping day of the season (Black Friday) will be here in 4 weeks. Avoid the last-minute shopping mania and pick up a few unique pieces for your loved ones at Roslindale Open Studios next weekend.
The event is free to attend so come and explore for the afternoon. Besides, you’ll get the opportunity to catch up with me if you stop by the School of Modern Languages on Saturday from 11 to 2! Even if you can’t take in the whole event, swing by to pick up a Roslindale Open Studios brochure and look on page 3 for my sidekick, Moses, pictured to the left. And if art alone is not enough of a draw (pun intended!), did I mention there are prizes? There will be raffles and Home Studio Bingo to keep you on your toes and entertained all afternoon.
In addition to volunteering on Saturday, I’m looking forward to taking in as much art as I possibly can between open houses on Sunday. I’m passionate about the Roslindale community and love my work here and in the surrounding neighborhoods because of the wonderful local treasures, such as Roslindale and Jamaica Plain Open Studios.
I hope to see you at Roslindale Open Studios, but if you can’t make it I’d still love to connect with you! I’m always out and about the neighborhood whether I’m running errands or helping clients sell or buy amazing homes in Roslindale, Jamaica Plain or West Roxbury. Let me know if I can help you in your home search!
