It's true.  This weekend, I'll be opening the locked doors of my studio TO THE PUBLIC FOR THE FIRST TIME, as part of the Atlantic Avenue Artwalk (downloadable map). We'll start at 1pm Saturday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.  The first five attendees will receive a key to the city.  I'm not saying which city. Later we'll have snacks and an art project.  I'll show work from my book-in-progress and other interesting things. All visitors may have their photo taken in a vintage child-sized top hat I brought back from Paris.  I'm pretty sure it's magic!

If that's not enough enticement, Holly & Dave will host a lemonade stand & tag sale out front.  I hear they make crazy deals.


1pm - 6pm Saturday & Sunday, June 5-6. 264 Dean Street (b/w Nevins & 3rd Ave)



Thanks to everyone who visited the open studio last weekend!

If you missed it, a few photos.  Prior to ribbon-cutting:
