Five artists who live and work in the city’s South End will open their studios and welcome visitors Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 22 and 23 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Deborah Winship (53 Fulton St.) sells  paintings, cards and prints of her work at her home and studio. She will show a large body of work that includes recent acrylics and a new print of Monhegan.

Joseph Barberio (16 Marine St.) has worked as a stained glass artist for 33-plus years. The glass work is process-oriented, which has brought about an interest in the spontaneity of hand-built clay pieces.

Abstract landscapes and other paintings will be on display at Jill Caldwell’s studio (7 Gamage Lane). There is something for everyone. A tour map is available on her website,

Sue Reed (27 Fulton St.) has been a painter for more than 30 years and will have pendants, pins, earrings and assemblages on display. The pieces are made in a unique, patented process using paint “chips,” fused with a European backing material and embellished with gemstones and pearls; see her website at

Marjorie Strauss (10 Ingraham Lane, across from the South End Grocery) has been working in pastels for many years and has moved into working in clay as well.

“Pastels are like painting with your fingers, very tactile, and since showing depth is a big part of them, actually working in 3-D with clay has become a natural extension of the process,” she said.

Tour maps will be available online, at the downtown Art Space Gallery and other local locations or at the artists’ studios during the tour. Look for the multicolored balloons marking each studio.
