Okay, so I’ve been talking a lot about art lately. But when art is so interesting and good in this region, how can I help myself?
Coming up on May 10 is the Globe Studio’s Spring Art Show and Open House. You get to poke around in artist studios, see where talented people make interesting things, ask them questions (most artists enjoy talking about what they do and why) and see if something catches your fancy to take home for your wall, table or body.
Artists generally work in isolation, but every so often, they tidy up their studios and invite people in for a look. That can be a pretty risky activity (sharing what you make with the outside world) but it is an important part of the process of creating.
So head to Globe Studios and wander around. You’ll get to see the diverse work of My Pet Skelton artist Vincent Marcone, printmaker Michelle Purchase and painter Lauren Judge, among many talented others. It’s a pretty inspiring place. You should go.
