Open Studios is a great way to explore “Art Around Every Corner” of Roslindale
The Roslindale Open Studios is an exciting weekend event offering artists and the public a chance to connect with each other in a comfortable community setting. Over 110 local artists in 55 locations open the doors to their workplaces and homes; businesses and restaurants host shows and events; and group sites bring several artists together in convenient locations around the neighborhood.

If you have an interest in the arts or fine crafts – whether as a serious collector or a curious admirer – you can meet our participants, learn about how and where they work, and purchase distinctive items at a fraction of gallery or retail costs. If you just want to look around and explore, that’s great too. The goal of Roslindale Open Studios is to make art accessible, and to offer you a fun afternoon in our neighborhood.

Want to know what all the ‘Rosi’ buzz is about? Come for the day and find out. Shop with our sponsoring merchants, and eat at one of our great restaurants. We have several concentrated areas on the Open Studios route to choose from. Some of the individual artists will be at Group Sites and some will be located in their homes. Each tour is based around a group show site.

Tours include:

-Longfellow House Area
-Sacred Heart School
-Pleasant Cafe
-School of Modern Languages
-Roslindale Congregational Church
-Roslindale Village
-Roslindale House


In 2007, local artists established the Roslindale Arts Alliance. The mission of RAA is twofold: 

(1) to support local artists by providing opportunities for them to display, sell and teach their art.
(2) give the community access to see and participate in art. 

We advocate and provide programming for all art mediums - visual and performing.  We are a nonprofit organization under the 501 3(C) financial services of Community Arts Advocates.
