Boston Open Studios

October 21, 2008

Faye and I drove up to Boston and walked the Fort Point Open Studios last weekend. It was fun, fun, fun! The new studios off of “A” Street are beautiful. We met our friend Chris Watts and played foosball for about an hour on a “Bay Of Pigs” foosball table, the men were little Castros and the playing field was a beach. Faye met an artist who was creating clay vessels along the sidewalk, sort of a public art exhibition - anyone could play along. We took the opportunity to get our hands dirty and if you ask Faye, I think this was her funnest part of the day - even more fun than foosball I think.

We met Rob Charlton of Goosfish Press again, he has a new studio in South Boston too, so he will be open for the South Boston Open Studios as well. I wish we could have met with Laura Davidson again, but either her studio wasn’t open, or we missed her.

As usual, I didn’t take as many pictures as I should have, but I met a new paper artist {new to me} who I’ll write about next. In the meantime, here are a few photos of us having fun!

  1. It is really exciting to see these pics up on your blog! It reminds me of how much fun the weekend was. And, if you check my website, you will also see that Faye was as much a highlight of my experience as I may have been of her’s. Her energy was inspiring.

    It’s important for me to think back to this because currently, I am faced with some serious neighborhood controversy. The non-artist condo owners at 25 Channel Center Street are unhappy, to say the absolute least, about my pink line adorning ‘their’ sidewalk. Having never viewed my addition to the neighborhood for the weekend as art, there are several ‘members of the community’ who are demanding that I remove the line. Essentially, they are asking me to create a gap in the neighborhood connection, right in front of their condos.

    This is, unfortunately, proving more difficult than I would like. The solvent sold to me by the manufacturer of the chalk with which I drew the line is not working as well as one might hope. I was out at 8 pm last night in 40 degree weather with my broom and a very helpful friend, but we were unable to erase every trace of the line. This leaves me with little other option than to rent a powerwasher for the weekend.

    The controversy continues…and I will do my best to keep you posted!
