So, What's it Like?
One year ago, I heard that there may be an opportunity for an artist to work in the studio at Gov. Ames Park here in Easton, MA. The property has recently been purchased by the Trustees of Reservations and is being cultivated as a beautiful park. Trustees.org With approximately 38 acres, it’s just the right size for a stroll over rolling lawns and level paths, by lovely ponds and amongst stately trees. In short, a very inspiring place to create art, as well as relax in nature.
This week, I've started moving my equipment in. I'm still in awe that, early this spring, I’d been asked if I’d be interested in doing an artist-in-residency here. As the inaugural artist, in fact. What a dream come true for me- and I'm very excited to start this season.
I decided to start this blog to chronicle my days creating as I attempt to answer the question of what it’s like to be an artist here-because, you see, I’m as curious as you are.
So, as I set up my looms, organize my yarns, tools and paints in this charming studio, I'm feeling deeply blessed to spend my summer in a place that's steeped in American history and art.
And-yes, I’ll be having open studio time during the week so we can share this experience. I look forward to seeing you!
