Somerville Open Studios is run by artist volunteers and its Volunteer Show held each year features the work of these artists. This year’s show features 77 works of art by 49 volunteers present and past. This year the show is hosted by Diesel Cafe in Davis Square. The opening reception is tonight and the artwork will be on display until May 12th. The cafe is open 6am – 10pm, Monday – Friday, and 7am – 10pm, Saturday – Sunday. When you have the opportunity to stop in for a bite to eat or cup of coffee, please take time to peruse the art upon the walls. It is a delight and indeed inspiring to see the range of work being created across Somerville. As for my contribution this year … 🙂

Yes, indeed, it is that time of year once more.  Somerville Open Studios 2015 is taking place May 2 + May 3, with sneak previews on May 1.  I am honored to have this piece appearing in the SOS Volunteer Show held at the Bloc 11 restaurant in Union Square April 8 – May 20.  If you click on the image, you’ll see that it is a photograph of the oak tree that towers over my house.  Really. The view is through the kitchen window after the window’s covering of ice had melted.  I’ve yet to name the image though one friend suggested “attempted evolution,” as if something were trying to become a tree.  I’ve got until April 1 to settle upon a name. I’m open to more suggestions.  Meanwhile, more information about Open Studios events and activities later in the spring. 😉
