Here are some new tile coasters I made this weekend. I used 4" square rustic tiles and patterned paper. I made each design as a set of four, and the coasters are backed with cork.

Vernon Street Studios, Somerville: Open Studios


Saturday November 8 & Sunday November 9, 2008: 12 - 5 p.m.

Over 50 artists will welcome the public into their workspaces at 6 and 20 Vernon Street, 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 to open their studios to the public in 1975. The Open Studios event allows attendees to learn about the creative process, interact with artists in the spaces where they create, purchase original artwork, and discover new talent.

On Saturday, November 8 from 5 - 7 p.m. there will be an Acoustic After Party featuring:

- Live music by the Super People & Jimmy T ( The Well) & Friends
- White Owl Farm Elixir Bar
- party sponsored by Highland Kitchen (150 Highland Avenue, Somerville)

The studios are located in the Rogers Foam facility, which is comprised of two buildings on the corner of Central and Vernon Streets.
