First Friday in SoWa Boston

Hi there. Dang, it’s June already. My weeks of late have been rather full and purposeful, as I zero in on completing various projects and goals.

There was a First Friday event in our studio building a few nights ago. First Friday is a tradition in our SoWa Boston artist studio building, a once a month event in which 70+ artists open their doors to the public. I met some new art lovers this past Friday, as well as some return visitors, and had some fun conversations.

Here are a few photos I snapped in some neighboring second floor artist studios. I didn’t make it out of my studio long enough to venture up to the third or fourth floors.

See that long citrus-y silk cord tassel necklace on the lower right? It’s my favorite style of necklace, and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. I made the mistake of trying it on, and seconds later I was saying, “Okay, I’ll take it.”

Happy Sunday, everyone.

Hi there. I’m Boston-based digital artist Paula Ogier. In this blog I write about about my art new works, projects in process, life in Boston, inspirations, ideas, and creative challenges. I live and work in Boston's South End neighborhood, in the enclave known as the SoWa Art + Design district. I'm fond of big cities, architecture, great imaginative spaces, food & drink, gardening, wandering around the city on foot, binge-watching well written shows, talking to cats, and of course, making and experiencing art.
