In addition to art studios, visitors can get a peek into live/work lofts, creative small businesses, and corridors which often serve as gallery space. With everything from oil painters to wood workers, alongside sculptors, jewelers and poets, there is something for everyone.

Since a tragic accident on September 6th, Kevin Cellucci – a carpenter, a husband and father of three from Dorchester – has been in coma. In one swift moment, after a car veered over the road’s lane markings along the Arborway, life for the Celluci family will never be the same.  His wife Tina (Lamonica from Southie) and his three boys ages – all under the age of four, need not only our prayers but our help financially as well.
On Saturday, November 2nd, a fundraiser will be held to show support for the Cellucci family.  It will be held in at the IBEW Hall in Dorchester beginning at 7pm. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. You can purchase tickets by emailing [email protected]
