My piece, Winter Constellation, is now installed in the window of the CVS in Porter Square, Mass Ave., Cambridge MA. It's a companion piece to the Summer Constellation that hung in Frame 301 this July. It's fun to see this at night, since I installed it during the day, and I had no idea how it would look with lights on it. I wanted the hanging doodles to move slightly and they do, thanks to the heat from the light bulbs and the air that circulates from the store. I bought a small desk fan to help the movement, but I might not need it after all.

Art Basel/Art Miami

I was lucky enough to be able to go to the art fairs in Miami last week. I had never been before, and did not really know what to expect. Fortunately, I was with some of the other Golden Working Artists and a few other friends from Boston, so there were plenty of people to help navigate the various sites. The two biggest ones, Art Basel and Art Miami, were held in huge halls, where seemingly hundreds of galleries displayed a selection of artwork by members of their stable. There were many other smaller venues - galleries nestled in emptied out hotel rooms in some of the picturesque, Art Deco buildings:  Aqua, Ink, Pulse, Verge, Red Dot and more. 

Several Boston based artists' work was present, including Joanne Mattera, Resa Blatman and Cheryl Warrick to name just a few.

Here are a few images culled from the 400 some photos I took.
