Historic Interpretation at the Peabody Historical Society

Historic Interpretation is a unique exhibition of new artworks inspired by historical artifacts in the Peabody Historical Society collection. I chose to interpret a concert bill from when Arthur Fiedler visited Peabody during its Centennial Celebration in 1968 (my parents remember this, but I don't). My interpretation was to celebrate the way music is being made in Peabody today, specifically the students at Accel. School of Music, who were lucky enough to perform at the Hard Rock Boston this past winter. I used several of the photos I took at that event, along with photos taken in Peabody, to create this digital collage, which was transferred to claybord and acrylic. The exhibit runs from August 15 through October 18.

Maine recharges the muse

Back from a week in Maine and playing with lots of the pictures I took. We hiked our favorite Sabattus Mountain (great views), swam and fished in Moose Pond, entertained our niece and nephews, shopped in Bridgton, and ate way too much. It's a great way to unwind and recharge, and now I'm looking forward to getting back to work.
