Please join us this weekend, October 21 and 22, as we tour the Artist Open Studios in our neighborhood. This has been happening for 10 years now and it is very enjoyable to check out their work. The event is sponsored by many businesses in the 'hood. Some will be displaying works by the artists in their respective locations like Room and Board. Swann Street resident and artist Charlie Gaynor will be showing some of his work at Room and Board until Sunday. So get out there and enjoy our Fall weather and buy some artwork for holiday gifts or for your homes!

A new gallery and framing shop has opened at 1830 14th Street two doors down from the Room and Board store. When Bar Pilar decided to expand its operation into the second floor, a spokesperson for the management told neighbors that they would open a gallery across the street to support the Arts District since they were taking the second floor of Raven Arts. We wish the new gallery and artists "good luck!"
