Enjoyable evening of art in Boston May 13, 2012
The SOWA (believe that’s short for South Washington) artist district of Boston is a major artist community with hundreds of artists' studios and dozens of galleries. At the center of SOWA, 450 Harrison Avenue is home to 15 galleries and over 50 artist studios occupied by members of the SOWA Artist Guild. The SOWA Artists Guild is a non-profit association organized around promoting the diversity and individuality of the artists working in this space. These members hail from around the world and work in a variety of mediums in order to share their unique approach to creative expression.

The first Friday of each month, members of the SOWA Artists Guild open their studios for a fun evening of first-hand art exploration. Meet the artists, learn what inspires them, and be amazed at what can be done with wire, glass, clay, paint, fabric, etc. Shops in the immediate area also stay open late as well. The event is free, parking is available, and several artists and shops offer wine, cheese, crackers and other small nibbles.

Upcoming 2012 dates include June 1, July 6, August 3, and September 7 from 5:00PM-9:00PM.
