Participate in Somerville Open Studios

Somerville Open Studios (SOS) is a 501c3 non-profit organization created and run by Somerville artists and art enthusiasts who volunteer time and energy to create a citywide open studios event. We welcome new ideas and participation from all people interested in promoting the visual arts in Somerville. It's a great way to get involved in the local arts community, meet other artists, and have fun!

Become a Volunteer

Volunteering is an excellent way to be connected with the Somerville arts community. You can get involved in behind-the-scene preparation for Open Studios in some of the following areas: Operations, Fundraising, Graphics, Public Relations, Web Content Management, Short Administrative Tasks, and Miscellaneous Labor and Light Construction, and more.

Any artist who lives in Somerville, or maintains a working arts studio in Somerville, is eligible to participate in SOS. If the space where you create your art is not a suitable space to invite visitors, we may be able to help you show in our Community Space. (Only available to Somerville artists).

Registration for SOS 2013 is closed.
If you would like to participate as an artist in SOS 2014, make sure you're on our mailing list. We will announce in the Fall when registration will open again.

The SOS Artist Directory is open 10 months of the year (closed only during registration period for the new year). Visitors will select which sites to see during SOS, and will be reminded of artists they saw and loved, based on what they see on the website. If you put good images up people will know that they want to see your work.
