supporting local artists

Yesterday, on one of the most beautiful days New England had to offer, my husband and I drove to the Fuller Craft Museum to hear Chungie Lee speak about her work. Her installation, My Cup Overflows, is breathtaking. Huge in scale, intimate in feeling. Her lecture covered her own installations as well as student work from classes she'd taught. Head-spinning, to contemplate that focus and creativitiy.

I am back in the saddle after a hiatus. The flu in the summer - what a combination. Last week my mom fell and broke her hip. She lives seven hours from me, so I have been trying to help from a distance. Very frustrating.

Friday my husband and I will see Don White at the Amazing Things Art Center in Framingham .If you don't know who he is, click on here for his song, "Be Sixteen with Me." He is a poet. He's also very funny. He'll share the stage with the Christine Lavin. Laughter, feeling, and money spent on other artists. A perfect date.
