Boston ceramicist (and neighborhood mom/friend) Jill Rosenwald has studio space available for rent. She and her charming husband Lawrence McRae, who’s also a potter, would love to fill the spots with amazing creative/design people.
The airy, all white loft is located in a 10-story warehouse in Boston’s artsy Fort Point neighborhood and available right after Thanksgiving. Jill Rosenwald and her studio space are so fab, they were featured here in the popular career & design blog The Everygirl.
The vacant spaces were occupied by two of my colleagues, photographer Sarah Winchester and interior designer and Elements of Style blogger Erin Gates, both of whom have moved to suburban digs. I’ve been to the studio space and can attest to its inviting aura. But see for yourself. And yes, Jill Rosenwald is as fun and colorful as her pottery! Plus, furry friends are allowed.
Fort Point Open Studios in Boston’s Fort Point neighborhood is this coming weekend, Saturday & Sunday October 18th & 19th. It is the 35th anniversary of Fort Point Open Studios and more than 150 artists open their studio doors to visitors, thanks to the hard work of artist and organizer Gabrielle Schaffner.
You can spend the day exploring the historic waterfront warehouses (there are artists’ studios in 14 buildings, all within walking distance, though there will be a free shuttle too) that are home to painters, sculptors, ceramicists, jewelers, performance artists, printmakers, book artists, photographers, and others for a behind the scenes look at where Boston artists create their work. There are both established artists and emerging talents.
My friend and longtime Fort Point artist, photographer Stephen Sheffield whose studio I blogged about this spring, will be there, as well as graphic designer Jennifer Hill who I know from Design Salon (and Facebook), and furniture maker Quentin Kelly, whose color-edged stool I included in the Boston Globe recently. Also, textile artist Amy Nguyen who creates Japanese designs; I met her last year at the Apple Store Genius Bar. I was also very psyched to discover, just today, photographer Alicia Savage whose “Morning Light” series I plan to do a follow up post on, and the chunky scarves and mittens by A Third Piece.
Fort Point Open Studios is free, and there is free parking too in the lot at A Street and Binford Streets. (Turn onto Binford Street from A Street towards the Channel, then turn left into the parking.) Head down there next weekend, and look for me.
