Hello my friends...I hope everyone is enjoying this heat and having fun this summer. Personally, it's almost too hot to sit in front of this computer and work on my photographs. But, it sure beats the snow any time. I'm definitely a summer girl. Why am I still living in New England? hmmm
Last week I was in Seattle, WA. I totally loved it there. I didn't get to roam around like I usually do and find all the hidden beauty that I find everywhere I visit because I'm still on crutches. However, I still enjoyed the city. I most definitely want to go back when I can walk without crutches and take lots of pictures like I usually do when I visit new places. I'm sure I will take a lot more than the 400 pictures that I took on this trip. Seattle has a great artist community and I was glad that I went to the Public Market where the artist sell their work.
The artists there were awesome. I chatted with quite a few of them. There were both painters and photographers. It was very eclectic work..some on the weird side (almost bizarre) and I got to see some very different work that I'm not used to seeing here in Boston. That is the best part about art...there is something for everyone. The artists that I spoke with were all very nice and enjoyable to talk to. They told me the art scene is fantastic in Seattle. They told me, however that it's very expensive and there is a 3 year wait to get into the Public Market to sell work. Hmmm, I loved Seattle so much I pondered the idea and still am of putting my name on that waiting list for a spot there. I could definitely see myself living there for awhile. The people are cool, down to earth and friendly... and what more can I ask for if the art scene is as fantastic as they say. But for now I am still in Boston and have some dates where I will be:
August 2nd is the last date my work will be on exhibit at the Peabody Historical Museum, 35 Washington St., Peabody. The hours are 12:00-3:00. At 3:00 I will be bringing home my exhibit unless the photographs have been sold. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they have been sold.
August 3rd I will be putting up 8 pieces of my work to exhibit at the Lynn Union Hospital. This exhibit will be there through the end of September. Shoot me an email and I can tell you exactly where in the hospital the exhibit will be hanging (email@example.com).
August 28th I will be at Art Fridays again on Summer St., Boston between Macy and Filene's. The time is 11:00am - 6:00pm.
Well, it looks like I'll have my work spread around a bit in August so I can't complain.
Don't forget...support your local artist. If you would like to see more of my work, please check out my tabblo at www.tabblo.com/studio/person/cathystacy or my website at www.cathystacyphotography.com. I also have two portfolios which I could personally show you. One portfolio is all photographs I use for cards and the other is for matted and/or framed photographs. Send me an email if you would like more information about my work or to set up an appointment to view my portfolio.
Enjoy! Life is too short and too beautiful to waste a moment of it.
Peace and Love,
