The title of the group show is “Conversations” and it will be on view through June 17. There will be an opening reception on May 18th from 4-6pm.

Studio at Artisan’s Asylum

I started renting a studio at Artisan’s Asylum last October (after about half a year or so on the waitlist!). It’s a shared maker workspace that’s split into cubicles with an open plan, and a lot of it is also devoted to shops for woodworking, metalworking and more. And the space hosts a lot of educational programming in a wide variety of creative subjects. I will be participating in Somerville Open Studios (May 4-5) in my space at the Asylum — I’m looking forward to showing it off! Here’s what it looks like right now.

 

Mapmaking Workshop and Closing Reception for “Driven to Abstraction”

Tomorrow (Saturday the 16th) I will be giving a mapmaking workshop at the Old Schwamb Mill in Arlington from 11am-12pm, open to attendees with RSVP (see more). There will also be a closing reception that afternoon for the current four-person exhibition “Driven to Abstraction” that includes many of my map drawings. The reception is from 3:30-4:30pm and open to the public.

Mapmaking Workshop at Old Schwamb Mill

UPDATE: Due to an approaching snowstorm, all events on Saturday will be canceled and the Mill will be closed. The workshop is tentatively rescheduled for March 16; more information will be posted closer to the date.

I will be running a mapmaking workshop on Saturday, February 9th at the Old Schwamb Mill, a frame mill in Arlington that has been in continuous operation since 1864. The workshop will center around the idea of mapping from your life — from travel, childhood memories, life timelines, or anything you can think of. I will be providing art materials; just bring creativity. The workshop will be from 11am-12 noon, with a brown bag lunch, concert and exhibit reception to follow throughout the course of the day. The workshop is $5 to enter, and limited to 15 participants (open to adults and also children age 9-12) — so RSVP soon to save your spot! Please contact Ed Gordon at the Old Schwamb Mill by email at info@oldschwambmill.org or by phone at 781 643-0554 to RSVP. Full information from the Mill on the day’s schedule after the jump:
