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. 😉

In New England, spring means flowers but it also means arts festivals galore. The one that I’ve become most connected with is Somerville Open Studios. This year’s official SOS weekend is May 3 + May 4 with studios open across the city and easily accessible by foot and trolley cars.  Several April exhibits are also already up and running.

Maps of different exhibit locations for the main May weekend are available in every Somerville neighborhood.  The mapstands, made by artist Hilary Scott, are quite distinctive and kept regularly stocked by volunteers.

The show is one of the largest of its kind in the U.S.  You can read more about its unique history here. And you can learn more about participating artists via this link.  Each year it is inspiring for me to see how involved the artists are, at every level, in making the show a success for everyone.

Water is the common theme, with all its simplicity of form and complex properties.  Unseen trees reflected in the still waters of recent rains along the Charles River Esplanade.

Light bouncing around the ice enhancing the vibrant colors of rocks held tight on a Woburn road.

The two pictures were taken years apart but will both be on exhibit this April at different events.  If you’re in the neighborhood, I hope you’ll stop by to see the work of all the artists on show.

Reflections will be on display at the Artists’ Group of Charlestown 9th Annual Spring Show.  Opening Reception is this Friday, April 12th, from 6:00-9:00 pm.  Read more here:  http://www.artistsgroupofcharlestown.com/

Blood. Fire. Sunsets and sunrises.  Red is the color of energy.  Whether “hot” or “warm” in tone (never cold), that color in all its variations expresses the complexity of life.  I’m pleased to be part of a new art exhibit at the Inside-Out Gallery  focused on that magnificent color.  If you’re in the neighborhood during the month of July, drop by and take a look at all the artists’ expressions of red.  Location:  Inside-Out Gallery in the CVS Window in Davis Square, Somerville.

This month the Inside Out Gallery (located in the CVS window in Davis Square, Somerville) is featuring a juried exhibit showcasing international cuisines.  I’m proud to have three photos in the exhibit of images taken during a visit to Kyoto, Japan.  There are many other beautiful works on display.  I hope if you’re in the area you’ll pause a moment to check out all of the tasty images.

So, with four days to go before Somerville Open Studios 2011 officially opens, I am feeling the butterflies in the stomach.  But in a good way. 😉  I am excited to be offering high quality postcards this year.  Anyone buying one of my postcards this weekend will receive a free postcard stamp (while supplies last).  Notecards are back with an emphasis on images that capture the beauty of the four seasons.  Last year I brought framed prints.

This year you’ll see more matted prints so that you can frame the images however you like.

Here’s something you won’t be seeing at Open Studios but you may see in the near future.

I’ve always loved the idea of bookmaking and recently tried my hand at using my photographs as the cover art of little blank journals.  I made a few experimentally.

I was a bit concerned about the bindings but at least one small book withstood the attentions of a three-year old so, I think the bindings are okay.

There are just a few other details I need to work out before I feel comfortable offering them up.  But here’s a sneak peak at one.

And finally I am excited to be sharing the table with artist Zoe Langosy.  Over the past few months I’ve been able to share a bit about Zoe as an artist, as well as how she is incorporating my photography into her collage work.  This weekend, come on by our table to see the completed pieces.  The originals will be on display with prints for sale.  I’ve already placed an order. 😉

Here are the details:

Somerville Open Studios, Saturday April 30 and Sunday May 1, 12:00-6:00 PM

Visit as many artists’ studios as you can.  There’s lots of transportation options to help you get around.  Zoe and I will at the Community Space located at The Armory, 191 Highland Ave, Somerville, MA.  That’s Location #57 in the SOS mapbook.

Whew! That’s the scoop.  Thanks for reading.  See some of you in a few days.
