Mission Statement

Currently the main activities of FPAC are artists lease negotiations for the artist floors rented from the Archon Group and Berklee Investments; advocacy for Fort Point artists in relation to the Central Artery/Third Harbor Tunnel Project, the South Boston Seaport Master Plan and the Convention Center; exhibitions in the FPAC Gallery and our various annual Open Studios events. Each of these issues and events requires many, many hours of volunteer work.

Description

Open Studios
Since 1978 , Fort Point artists have opened their studios to the public during the third weekend in October. The Open Studios Weekend attracts about 10,000 visitors to our neighborhood. This event offers the public a rare glimpse into the living and working spaces of artists, while providing a valuable opportunity for artists to sell their work.

During the Open Studios weekend the FPAC Gallery hosts a group show for FPAC members. The Group Show allows visitors to see a sample of the work of many different artists in one place, while also giving members who are not able to open their studios an opportunity to be represented.

Open Studios is a festive event for the artists involved. It is a time for them to celebrate after months of preparation and hard work, as well as to reaffirm their vitality and strength as a community in the face of so many changes and challenges.
