There is nothing wrong with your monitor. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. Today’s broadcast is coming to you from Big Picture Framing HQ to give our fearless blogger a well deserved break. While the voice may change, the ideals remain the same!
There are a million colorful reasons that I love fall, but one in particular is the onset of art & craft fair season! They’re everywhere this time of year! I try to hit as many of these events as time, and my bank account, allow. I love meeting artists, seeing new ideas and new interpretations of old ideas, and learning about fun new techniques. I’m drawn to all different mediums, I like diversity in everything I do and own, (except my bourbon-straight-up; single barrel. Mash or blends need not apply!), and I collect eclectically, so these events are the mother-load for me!
One of my favorite art events each year is the Waltham Mills Arts Associations Open Studios. Over the years, Big Picture has done a great deal of framing for this event so I’ve gotten to see a lot of original art come through from WMAA artists and I especially love it when I get to meet and talk with them about their work!
This is WMAA’s 36th year. It’s one of Greater Boston’s oldest artists’ communities, with more than 70 artists working in a wide range of media, including sculpture, glass, printmaking, painting, textiles, photography, woodworking, film, video and more!
Former Big Picture staffer, Michelle Arnold Paine, is a member of the WMAA and has been helping coordinate this event. In addition to being a top-notch picture framer, Michelle is a wonderful contemporary painter and teacher, and she’s is going to be a Mom any second now! Yea! Check out some of her work here and go see her there!
WMAA Open Studios. Saturday, November 3rd 12-6pm, Sunday, November 4th 12-5pm. 144 & 289 Moody Street, Waltham, MA. Support your local artists!
Charles River Museum of Industry (http://www.crmi.org) will be FREE OF CHARGE during Open Studios hours on Saturday and Sunday, so there will be something for both the art lovers and the science lovers!
