The Joi of Koi

During the summer we take the kids to a mini-golf course near our house and they have a great koi pond at the entrance. I took dozens and dozens of photos and played with them for a while to come up with these fairly abstract collages. I think they make a nice set.

The Guilty Pleasure of Looking at Other Studio Spaces

Seth Apter over at The Altered Page always shares some great artistic information. This month he's got a super collection of studio shots that are so addicting to look at. One, because it's fun to see what materials other artists are using. And two, because it makes me feel better about how messy my own space is! (as evidenced above). If you have a few minutes to wander, it's worth a peek.

The most widely attended and most popular Open Studios event in Boston with over 300 Artists with their studio doors open to visitors. I will have my booth at the SOWA Open Market, Saturday & Sunday - 10 to 5 where there will be over 120 artist vendors. PLEASE COME VISIT!

"Thresholds" Exhibit at the Salem Arts Association Gallery

Lots of new events & upcoming shows to tell you about. The first is the "Thresholds" exhibit at the Salem Arts Association Gallery on Artists Row in Salem, MA. Exploring the theme "thresholds," the exhibit includes various 2-D and 3-D pieces (including mine...I also designed the marketing materials you see here), AND includes over 80 pieces of mezuzah. What is a mezuzah? It is a kind of holder of biblical scripture, affixed to the doorpost (or threshold) of a Jewish home. I am not Jewish, but I love the sentiment of crossing that threshold from outside life into your own sacred space. If you're on the North Shore, take a visit to Artists Row and check out the exhibit, or stop into Experimental Art Gallery & Studio, which is also very cool.
