ARTmonday: Art + Cocktails Truro (Photography)

As I’ve mentioned, this summer we hosted a pop up art gallery in our home on Cape Cod. (You can see photos on IG #artandcocktailstruro ) We hung 96 artworks, a good portion of them photography. (I posted the paintings and mixed media pieces back in August here.)

I was really pleased that many of the pieces that sold were photos. And not only that, they were unique, personal pieces, even a couple I have in my own collection. Thanks to the photographers who lent work, and to the friends that purchased them.

If you’re interested there are still plenty to choose from; just email me at stylecarrot [at] gmail [dot] com.

Happy Mother’s Day

• • •

The Song Of The Old Mother
I RISE in the dawn, and I kneel and blow
Till the seed of the fire flicker and glow;
And then I must scrub and bake and sweep
Till stars are beginning to blink and peep;
And the young lie long and dream in their bed
Of the matching of ribbons for bosom and head,
And their ~y goes over in idleness,
And they sigh if the wind but lift a tress:
While I must work because I am old,
And the seed of the fire gets feeble and cold.
—William Butler Yeats

ARTmonday: Artwork for TroyBoston Model Apt #1409

I love when I have the opportunity in my work to showcase local Boston artists and makers. For the last couple of months I’ve been working on a interior decor scheme for a model apartment at Troy Boston, a brand new, upscale, “green” rental building in SoWa. It’s a little outside my usual scope of projects and it’s been fun. You may have seen the initial post I did about it, when I was determining the color scheme for the apartment—Impressions: Creating a Color Palette of Charcoal + Dusty Rose. The final palette is indeed based on this post, with plenty of textural elements, including velvet, sheepskin, cork, plywood, and copper.

The best part has been curating the artwork. The art collection is the distinctive feature of the overall design and I hope people will view it as an exhibition rather than mere decoration. The pieces, which include paintings, photographs, sculpture, and mixed media pieces, are all done by New England-based female artists. Some of these Boston artists are  talented friends (Lee Essex Doyle, Tess Atkinson, Grace Hopkins),  others are young artists whose pieces I’ve purchased over the years at the SMFA Art Sale (Laura Beth Reese, Eugenie Lewalski Berg), others are artists I’ve become familiar with through blogging (Cig Harvey, Alicia Savage, Anastasia Cazabon, Anna Kasabian, Rachel Cossar, Winky Lewis, Jenny Prinn), and others are Boston artists who are new to me  (Heather McGrath, Linda Cordner).

I knew from the start that I wanted to include a statement artwork of a partially obscured woman; a moody fashion-y photograph of an elusive woman. I was able to get a few, though no oversize pieces due to the prohibitive cost of printing. Nevertheless I think the collection will hold together well. At the end of this post, you can see my current hanging scheme for the main wall, and for over the bed. I also plan to print a few of my own Instagram photos to pin or (washi) tape up.

Here I present to you the Troy Boston Model Apt #1409 art collection featuring over a dozen Boston area artists.  I hope you love it and will learn more about these talented women, all of whom have generously lent me their artwork.

ARTmonday: 12 Empty Beds

I’ve spent the last five days resting, mostly. In my bed, in the guest room bed, on the sofa bed outside my bedroom. I think I’m finally feeling better. (I caught a cold from my son, who brought it home from camp.) I thought images of beds would be fitting for my circumstances. Hoping to move my body to the beach tomorrow, in an effort to enjoy the last few days of summer. Here are 12 paintings and photographs of empty beds.

Design Diary: Sharon Kitchens’ Great Cluck Egg Farm

Sorry I missed posting yesterday. Sailing camp started this week and with it a way too early rise and shine time, resulting in more napping than productivity. Thankfully next week high tide is at noon! Of course today it’s raining and I promised the boys I’d pick them up early, so let’s get this going.

This past spring I wrote about my friend Sharon Kitchens‘ foray into rural living in “Homestead Act” for the Boston Globe Magazine garden issue. We met five years ago when I wrote about her factory-turned-loft in Somerville’s Davis Square for Stuff Magazine (I should post those photos one day.)

Although she was already on the cusp of becoming the Earth Mother she is today, having joined a community-supported agriculture farm-share and a local fish-share, and growing vegetables on the roof. we totally hit it off. She had worked in film, as well as for a fashion photographer, so we had plenty in common. : ) 

After a stint in California, in 2011, Sharon bought an 1830s farmhouse with an attached barn and chicken coop on about 2 acres of land 20 miles outside Portland, Maine. Today, she writes two blogs, The Root for the Portland Press Herald, as well as her own, called Delicious Musings, and works her land. She’s enrolled in a master gardening course, keeps bees and chickens, and grows all sorts of vegetables. Check out the Globe article for all the fun details.
