Worth A Thousand Words

I love my studio mates and the great work they do!

In a Pickle

Late night last night, but the reward of waking up with a bunch of stuffed pickles and strawberries was nice. Back to the studio today to get ready for my Wed. visit from Chris Thompson, the curator for the Fire House Gallery in Burlington. Check back later for some sneak peaks at what Brian and Kelly are up to!

Farm Stand Frenzy

As for me, the Karrot dolls are behaving themselves outside of house: they finally made it to the studio! I'm finishing up some stackable build-your-own ice cream blocks and then onto a Baker's Dozen: 24 little egg dolls. I think that I'm going to turn my cast of trippy dolls and objects into a farm stand installation. It seems Vermont has gotten the best of me!

Go Mayday!

Kelly has been working hard and making beautiful things. (As Usual!) She will be selling her wares this Saturday, December 6th at: Paper & Chocolate: an Albertine Press + Taza Chocolate Event. Featuring May Day Studio,(aka Kelly) Carta Inc., Beck Wasilewski, Pressbound and more. Check it out from 10 am until 6 pm<---note extended hours! 561 Windsor Street, Somerville, MA (between Inman and Union Squares) If you're looking for something local, Kelly will be in Burlington next weekend, more details to come!

Zeigler Attack

Brian is holding down Montpelier's art scene with three shows on tonight's First Friday Art Walk. He's featuring recession rates on his wonderful art, as well as just plain affordable prices for rad drawings. You can see him and all his stylish glory from 5 to 8 P.M tonight at the new Men's Store on State Street! His work is also at Black Sheep Books and City Hall. Go Brian! (And thanks for bringing me a single spool of thread!) P.S Brian just got accepted to Vermont College of Fine Arts, so give him a high-five!

Psychedelic Morning

How do you know when a project is done? Does the painting or object tell you? Is being sick of it means for ending? This morning found me sewing mushroom stems and wishing for an advent calender. I feel like i am in a race with no finish line!
