Faculty Showcase at JP Open Studios

September 23 & 24, 2017
11am–6pm

Every fall, Jamaica Plain Open Studios showcases the work of some 200 artists throughout the neighborhood. This year, we devote both the inside of our building and our yard to Eliot School faculty and their fine work in woodworking, fibers, mixed media and fine arts. Admission free.

See some of our photos from past years.

Volunteer!

Help out this weekend! Volunteers staff our information table in three-hour shifts on Saturday and Sunday, and distribute Eliot School literature Saturday morning. We’ll give you a lovely piece of hand-made soap as your reward. Interested? Let us know.

Thank you so much for your help during this busy weekend!
