Jamaica Plain artists open their doors this weekend; Tesla issues recall over automatic window system 



Jamaica Plain artists open their creative workspaces this weekend for the 29th annual Jamaica Plain Open Studios.

From 11-6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday more than 100 artists at 40 different locations will open their doors to show their work and share the creative process.

“JP Open Studios was the second or third place I ever showed my art, and it was welcoming from the beginning. People come and they talk about your work. They’re interested, engaged, positive and encouraging,” said watercolorist Lisa Goren said whose work will be at the Footlight Club at 7 Elliot St. A.  “Other artists I have presented with are now friends of mine for life. It’s more than just a local arts show.”

Free maps of where participating artists will be stationed will be distributed at JP businesses and will be available during the event at the information booth at the JP Licks at 659 Centre St. Maps are also available for download at www.jpopenstudios.com.

Tesla issues recall over automatic window system

Tesla is recalling nearly 1.1 million vehicles in the U.S. because the windows can pinch a person’s fingers when being rolled up.

Tesla says in documents posted Thursday by U.S. safety regulators that the automatic window reversal system may not react correctly after detecting an obstruction.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that’s a violation of federal safety standards for power windows. An online software update will fix the problem, Tesla says.

The recall covers certain 2017 to 2022 Model 3 sedans and some 2020 and 2021 Model Y SUVs. Also included are some Model S sedans and Model X SUVs from 2021 and 2022.

Owners will be notified by letter starting Nov. 15. The company says in documents that vehicles in production got the update starting Sept. 13.
