The Weekender: November 18-20

boston events - weekend events

Happy Friday! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next week? It seems like the holidays started so early this year. Gift guides are going up, holiday promotions are in full-swing and while I was traveling home from Mexico on Wednesday I saw several Christmas trees in the airport. What do you think? Is it too soon? I love the holidays, but I think I prefer starting the Christmas festivities after Thanksgiving.

There are so many great events happening this weekend (and it appears to be a popular weekend for the arts). Here are a few of our top picks:

An All-Female Art Show. Boston is full of amazing female artists (you can read about some of our favorites here, including a recent post on artist Christina Chang), and this weekend you can check out some of them at an all-female art show. From 2-8pm, local artists will showcase their work at Boston Harbor Distillery. Details here.

SMFA Art Sale. The annual School of the Museum of Fine Arts art sale is this weekend! The sale features thousands of works from emerging and established artists, including SMFA students, alumni, and faculty.

Artist Marketplace. Brookline Arts Center is hosting the annual Artist Marketplace this weekend, which features jewelry, pottery, original prints, woodwork, and much more. We love supporting local artists, especially this time of year as we begin thinking about gift giving.

A CR(EAT)OR Market Launch. For the next five consecutive weekends, local artisans will pop up at the Boston Public Market to sell their wares alongside the market’s permanent vendors. This Saturday and Sunday, peruse handcrafted jewelry from Camla Jewelry, Rhode-Island’s Bellicchi’s Best Biscotti, original screenprints and screenprinted textiles from Egg A Go Go, and more. Details here.

TEDx. In need of a little inspiration? We love the local TEDx events, and this weekend there is one at the JFK Library. You can see all speakers and other event details here. I’d love to hear former NASA astronaut Dr. Cody Coleman speak — such a cool profession!

Do you have an upcoming event that you’d like to see listed on The Weekender? To be considered, send us a note at info@thebostondaybook.com. Have a wonderful weekend!
