JPOS Registration FAQ
Registration for Jamaica Plain Open Studios
Artist registration for this year's Jamaica Plain Open Studios is rapidly approaching. Registration will begin on May 24, 2016. Registration may be completed in person or by mail. There is no online registration this year. To be listed in the JPOS map booklet, artists must complete the registration process by midnight June 27, 2016. All artists should be prepared to enter their medium and upload an image on the JPOS web site once registration is completed.
We will be opening registration and holding group site registration in-person on Tuesday, May 24, from 7 pm - 9 pm at The Footlight Club, 7a Eliot Street, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130.
Individual Studio, Shared Studios, and Private Shared Site:
Artists showing in either an individual studio, shared studio, or private shared site may register beginning on May 24, 2016 in-person or by mail.
NEW Group Site Registration Process! (PLEASE NOTE: There is no reason to arrive early!)
Process: In person registration is no longer a first come first served process. At 7pm, Tuesday, May 24th, all artists who are in attendance will pull a random number out of a hat. This will determine your place in line for choosing your show location. Again, there is no benefit in arriving before 6:45pm as random numbers will be pulled beginning at 7pm! Early arrival will in no way affect your order of group site selection. Site selection will take place by random numbers pulled from a hat.
When registering for a group site, please be prepared to select your ideal location and provide your registration payment (payment can be made by cash, check, or credit card).
If you are unable to attend in-person, you may send a proxy to select your space or you may mail your registration to JPOS, P.O. Box 300222, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130. ALL registrations that are mailed in will be recorded after the May 24th in-person site selection is completed.
In person registrants can register themselves and one other artist only. Proxy’s will be required to pull a second number to represent absentee artist. Proxy can only select one location per number drawn. They will need to get back in line according to the random number selection to complete the second registration).
