Vernon Street studios

Vernon Street Studios is a community well known throughout the area for the quality of work produced by artists with established reputations as well as exciting newcomers. Located in an historic 19th-century brick industrial building, Vernon Street housed the first group of artists in Somerville to open their studios to the public in 1975. Open Studios allows attendees to learn about the creative process, interact with artists in the spaces where they create, purchase original artwork, and discover new talent.

Artists at Vernon Street Studios welcome the public into their workspaces at 6 & 20 Vernon Street at two different times each year: in the Fall for Vernon Street Open Studios, and in the Spring (during the first weekend of May) as one of many participating venues as part of Somerville Open Studios.
