This weekend is the annual Open Studios event in Boston’s South End. This 2-day neighborhood-wide event features 200 participating artists inviting you into their studios. Here’s more about that.
To prepare, I’ve been working on something I’ve been wanting to put together for ages — a catalog book of my art prints. I can’t possibly fit all my prints on my studio walls (not to mention the expense of having them all printed), so I really needed an in-studio catalog for visitors to see.
After working on the files all week, today was print day. After a few glitches with my files and the print cartridges, things finally came together. Tonight I’m putting the book together and it’s really exciting!
I also designed a new 4 foot x 2 foot banner (below) for my studio building. It was a thrill to watch it inch its way out of the printer, mainly because I was so happy with how well the color came out.
My prints are done by Mark Peterson, a Boston-based photographer whose studio is down the hall from me at 450 Harrison Avenue. I’ve been working with him for 5 or 6 years now and he’s fantastic. He’s also a fab photographer of urban environs — take a look at his work.
Have a great weekend, and if you’re in Boston, come on down to the South End for Open Studios. You won’t be disappointed!
