Paula Ogier artist studio 450 Harrison

A creative corner of my studio at 450 Harrison Avenue in Boston’s SoWa arts district

I moved in to Studio 203 at 450 Harrison Avenue very recently – on May 1 – so I am just starting my second month here. My furnishings are still a little bare bones but I’ve moved a lot of my supplies and furniture in and actually managed to do a little work here already. I’m still figuring out how to best use the space, so it may see some changes as my work habits take shape here.

I’m really pleased to now be included in the SoWa Artists Guild’s directory (top left on their page).

The SOWA Artists Guild at 450 Harrison Avenue is a non-profit association of professional studio artists. From their website: “The Guild’s purpose is to promote the diversity and individuality of the artists working in this flagship space, the center of the SOWA Art District.”

There are about 70 artist studios in this building, with mediums that include drawing, fiber arts, mixed media, painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, installation and jewelry.

The first Friday of every month, from 5-9 pm, 450 Harrison Avenue artists open their studio doors to the public. Unfortunately, I can’t be here on Friday nights (my studio mate, jewelry maker Barbara Goldberg is likely to have the studio open, however), but I’m usually here 1-5 pm on Sundays. You can come to this art + design district for SoWa Sundays and make a whole day of visiting the outdoor art and craftspersons’ tents, the farmers’ market, vintage market, food trucks, and of course the artist studios inside 450 Harrison Avenue. And not only does our building have artists – it has bathrooms!  These Sunday events run from May-October, they are free and parking is available.

450 Harrison Avenue Paula Ogier in studio 203May 1 brings a new phase for Yours Truly.  I’ll finally have an artist studio at 450 Harrison Avenue in Boston’s South End. I’ve long fantasized about being there one day, and now here it is. My studio mate is jewelry maker Barbara Goldberg. The building is just down the street from my home and provides an opportunity to further grow my both my art and my art business.

I’m also pleased to be joining the SOWA Artists Guild. I look forward to having a dedicated art studio and to being part of the 450 Harrison community of artists.

A little bit about the SOWA Artists Guild from their website:
“The SOWA artist district of Boston has developed into a major artist community with hundreds of artists’ studios and dozens of galleries. At the center of SOWA, 450 Harrison Avenue is home to 15 galleries and over 70 artist studios. The members of the SOWA Artist Guild are an eclectic group – from different parts of the world, working in different mediums, each with a unique approach to creative expression. What they share is dedication to their work and a serious pursuit of artistic quality.”

Come visit me in Studio 203!

Cheers,
Paula
