BostonAPP/Lab: Art in Public Places
BSA Space, 290 Congress Street, Boston


AN ARTIST, AN ARCHITECT, AND A DEVELOPER WALK INTO A BAR… They order their favorite brews and start to talk. Where are the overlapping interests that will guarantee a workable, sustainable model for collaboration that embeds art into a project’s initial design and development concept? What are the opportunities? The constraints? What collaborative tools can be developed to support this effort?
Join BostonAPP/Lab: Art in Public Places on September 23 at 6:30 pm at BSA Space (290 Congress Street, Boston) to share your experiences while helping to refine, or even create, this kind of collaboration. Tamara Roy AIA (senior associate principal, ADDInc.), Gillian Christy (sculptor), and Mark McGowan (manager-development, Skanska) lead the discussion.
Meetings are free and open to all, but RSVPs are required. Email rsvp@architects.org with “APP 9/23” in the subject line.

Boston Public Library is among my favorite place to go when in search of inspiration.

Artists represent just 1.4 percent of the labor force, but they have an outsized role as entrepreneurs and innovators who contribute to the vitality of the communities where they live and work.

With a heavy heart I am saying goodbye to my studio in Providence.  For me this is the end of an era, but my studio space in Dorcester feels like a new beginning.  I am painting, cleaning and working to make this space at Humphreys Street Studio feel like home. 

I am fortunate to have found this studio, because I am close to the urban and natural environment which is very important to me.  The community at Humphreys has been so friendly, I look forward to working alongside woodworkers, blacksmiths, stone-carvers and like any studio building- crafts people of all disciplines. 

Convergence is on view in Boston at the Christian Science Center Plaza.  Please join us for the Grand Opening at the Reflection Hall to celebrate the exhibition this Saturday, May 4 from 2-5 pm.  Walking around the plaza is so pleasurable, as sculptures miniature to massive catch your eye.  Enjoy a walk or lunch this summer to take in the variety of works by Boston Sculptors.

This work in progress, “The Space Within”, is a pair of sculptures that will be on exhibit for Convergence at The Christian Science Center Plaza.  I am counting down the hours until installation because I have a lot of work ahead of me.  Both house pieces are complete (whew!), now onto the center details.  Just in time for spring, I will be sculpting buds and leaves over the next couple of weeks.
