Interviewed about art and craft in Boston

The Bazaar Bizarre Boston organizers got interviewed by WBUR to talk about the continued rise of art, crafts, and handmade economies. Andrea Shea from WBUR interviewed 4 out of 7 of us and it was really fun! The piece will likely only feature one or two of us, and will be on Morning Edition tomorrow, either at 5:50 and 7:50, or at 6:50 and 8:50 if you want to tune in and listen. It will also be posted on WBUR afterwards, and I will be sure to post a link!

I haven't been set up for silkscreening in years, but I'm getting ready to get started all over again. Exciting!

Rad Artist installment #3

I think I have made 2 other posts about cool artists? Well, I am going to start giving them all this subject so I can keep track of who I have seen and loved their work.

Just saw Debbie Smyth's work (sadly, only on the internet!). HOLY CRAP her work is so cool. Specifically Lauren, Alex and Danielle might be into this woman's work because of her use of thread, multimedia, and handwritten text, but I think a lot of the WSAC artists would be into the style of her work.

So cool! Her piece 'Fly Away Home' that is the first series of images from initial sketch to finalized installation is what first drew me in. Her use of the space, the thread, pins, and the cut out handwritten text is so great. Debbie Smyth is definitely an artist I will be looking out for places to see her work in real life.
