It's been a wonderful weekend, first with a very successful 2016 Needham Open Studios, selling a number of original paintings and prints as well as some of my merchandise featuring my artwork; and second with a spectacular interview/article about me and my art. Lisa Koschwitz Salerno's website features a wonderful art blog, and one of the exciting themes is her "Support Living Artists In 2016" series. #SupportLivingArtistsIn2016 I am pleased to share that this week, I was selected to be her "Artist of the Week"! Thank you Lisa for the Interview!

I had the pleasure of attending Newton Open Studios, which featured over 160 artists at over 50 studios, private homes, and shared spaces! I only wish I could have seen them all. I did get to visit about a dozen locations and saw some wonderful artists, craftspeople, jewelry designers, sculptors, photographers, etc. I enjoyed visiting the New Art Center, 61 Washington Park, Newtonville, MA. There was an incredible diversity of styles, price points, and media! Many of the artists represented at the New Art Center teach classes to adults and children, and even have vacation week programs for kids. And it was great to see art lovers from near and far at all the sites I visited.

Visiting Newton Open Studios just a few weeks before I participate in Needham Open Studios was wonderful. It gave me a renewed energy to make my final preparations for Needham Open Studios 2016 on April 30th and May 1st and inspired me to do some new drawings and works on paper this evening. For all art lovers, I hope to see you at Needham Open Studios at Location 11, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, 1 Chapel St., Needham, MA. For more information, visit www.needhamopenstudios.com
