Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well. I also hope that you will be able to stop by my place for Somerville Open Studios, Saturday May 3rd and Sunday May 4th. I'll be at my house (68 Josephine Ave #2) from 12-6 both days. I'm #25 on the Somerville Open Studios map. It's a very short walk from Davis Sq.

Just a reminder that Charlestown Open Studios is this weekend! Yay! I will probably be bouncing around being sort of manic. So...the usual.

Greetings, everyone!

This is a reminder that Charlestown Open Studios is this upcoming weekend, December 7th and 8th, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

The Stove Factory is located at 523 Medford St., Charlestown, MA.

My studio space is on the 2nd floor.

Hope to see you there!
Greetings, everyone!

The Stove Factory is kicking off Charlestown Open Studios on December 7th and 8th, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. We are located at 523 Medford St., Charlestown, MA. My studio space is on the 2nd floor. The Artists Group of Charlestown is headquartered on the 1st floor.

I make detailed abstract watercolor cityscapes and things that look like alien amoebas. I share studio space with many talented artists and craftspeople, including paper maker & printer [livejournal.com profile] corruptviridian. She has many clever and lovely printed objects for sale as well as some really excellent hand made paper.


The Stove Factory is very close to Sullivan Station and the Schrafft's Building. There will be some parking available, but it is also fairly easy to get to The Stove Factory by public transportation, either by taking the bus or by taking the Orange Line to Sullivan Station. As a pedestrian, walk from Sullivan Station towards the Schrafft's building (it's hard to miss). Take care when navigating the cross walks at the rotary. Once you reach the Schrafft's building, take a right onto Main Street. Cross the old train tracks, cross Main Street towards the Fire Station, and then walk up Medford Street. You will be able to see the sign for The Stove Factory on the side of the building, but there will probably be other signs as well.

In case these directions make no sense here is a map

If you have any questions please let me know and I will try to answer them.

Hope to see you there!

You should all visit [livejournal.com profile] corruptviridian tomorrow at The Printing Office of Edes & Gill, where she will be printing in the colonial fashion on a fantastic and sexy printing press, dressed in colonial garb. 11am - 5:30pm. It's right next to the Old North Church. She will there every Wednesday through the end of the month. If you can't make Wednesday other people print on other days - Gary, the guy who runs the shop - is very entertaining. It closes for the season at the end of October.

Yay! Printing!

([livejournal.com profile] corruptviridian wrote this, so I'm not really talking about myself in the third person.)

ROOM FOR RENT in a delightful Somerville house. We're located about ten minutes from the Davis Square T station, in Ball Square. The room that's available is west-facing (it's reportedly the warmest room in the house, which sometimes a plus). The rent is $575/month, and utilities can vary dramatically from season to season. We generally keep the place between 55-60 in the winter, which keeps the heating bill down.

The apartment is the top two floors of a blue house (we just had a heated discussion about what color the trim is). The landlady lives downstairs and is totally delightful. There are grapes growing downstairs, which she lets us eat some of (she sometimes makes grape juice, and we've been known to make grape jelly). The downstairs common space is open-plan & full of natural light; we have a pretty sweet kitchen, once you get used to its quirks.

The current occupants are:

[livejournal.com profile] farwing, who runs around making sure people at a tech company get their coffee and their breakfasts. On weekends she does strange watercolors of alien single-celled organisms and cityscapes. She's very talkative.

[livejournal.com profile] corruptviridian teaches papermaking and letterpress printing. She also prints chapbooks, posters, and ... you know. Stuff. She designs books and builds machines for money. She also reads many, many books, and sometimes writes reviews. She's not terribly chatty, and she's mostly nocturnal, given the choice.

Brendan is joining the house in September. He is teaches guitar and seems delightful.

I am home safe. Freaked out. I used to work in Copley Square and have great fondness for it. Also: I am so sorry and miserable for the victims and their families.

Listening to KMFDM and eating cookies seems the best course of action right now.

*hugs* to all

[livejournal.com profile] corruptviridian's awesome friend Megan King is raising money to come up to Boston! She prints amazing things. Her etsy shop is here:

http://www.etsy.com/shop/MLKandtoastPress

Her posters in particular are on sale. Some of them are printed from lino cuts based on broken wooded type. She also has one that is about beer printed on beer paper (made with hops, barley, and water.)

http://www.etsy.com/shop/MLKandtoastPress?section_id=12133704

She is quite talented and lovely.



In other news, I went to bed at 6:30pm because I was feeling horrible and so woke up at 2am. And then couldn't get to back to sleep until 5:30. So I called in sick because I still felt horrible and slept more. So if I sound really crazy...

Hey there folks if anyone knows someone who is looking for a job in Cambridge, MA as an executive assistant let me know. Comment here or email me at farwing2000 at yahoo.
Another quick and painless reminder:

Charlestown Open Studios is today! Come see my art and the art of others at The Stove Factory! 523 Medford Street, Charlestown, MA! It will be awesome! Don't let the adorable snowflakes stop you now! Also I am wearing a wacky outfit! Hopefully not too wacky. I will have cookies and there will be mulled cider.

And there will be printing! On a Vandercook SP-20! Which is an excellent press for printing on! I will be sitting in a corner doing watercolors which is not as exciting to watch.

Hope to see some of you there!

farwing! (who is excited that it is snowing but wonders if the timing could have been better. And is it really supposed to be 61 tomorrow? I may be freaking out about that a little bit.)

What: The Stove Factory Gallery & Studio Space Open Studios

When: December 1st and 2nd, 10am-5pm

Where: 523 Medford St., Charlestown, MA, 2nd floor

Why: Because you want to see my art! Also, there are many other talented artists in the building. Plus, I love my studio space and you should all come see it! Also: holiday shopping!



It's right near Sullivan Station and the Schrafft's building. There will be some parking. There are a few Teamsters buildings with signs for Toy's For Tots on the walk over from Sullivan if that helps guide you there.

I've been painting small, highly detailed abstract watercolors and watching [livejournal.com profile] corruptviridian plan ambitious broadsides and cackle over tiny metal type.

If you find the time to come by I will probably be wearing a cocktail dress and offering people tea and cookies. And bouncing off the walls.

If you have any questions please let me know and I will try to answer them.

Here's a question for you lovely people:

In there anyone else out there who has hair so fine it ends up giving them splinters? I walk around barefoot in my house and sometimes I get splinters. From my own hair. Hilarious and painful all in one! I walk around the studio barefoot and do not get wood splinters, but hair splinters, them I get. My hair is more capable of providing splinters than a studio area that has a woodworking shop, you guys. (I have of course just jinxed myself and will now get all the wood splinters ever.)

So...am I the only one with freakish sadistic splinter hair?

Pineapple Liberte yogurt is really weird. I would say I do not like it, and I love almost all their other flavors. I am going to finish it, because it is food and I am hungry.

Yesterday I went to my parents' house and helped my mom organize and sort and move things around so the house can be put on the market next week. I managed to walk 9 miles worth of steps, and I did a lot of running up and down the stairs so my legs kind of hurt today. But we got a lot done and I like hanging out with my mom so it was actually pretty enjoyable. Also, it turns out if you try to clean a whole pile of milk crates by spraying them with a hose you end up having to throw your clothes in the drier and wander around in borrowed clothes.

And [livejournal.com profile] rwatsoff is going to be showing up soon so we can grab lunch and go adventuring. I am always happy when professional conferences bring him and/or [livejournal.com profile] taliaferro within visiting range.
