open studios


today we met friends at red brick, this very cool, up and coming, community artist building in beverly. twice a year over 30 artists open their studios to the public, and offer many classes to both kids and adults throughout the year. it is in the final stage of construction. they have done a fabulous job renovating the old brick building by retaining the integrity of many of it's industrial elements; old metal doors, huge exposed wooden beams, and exposed floor to ceiling brick supports. all four floors flood with light and creative energy flows throughout the many galleries and studios. the painting on the postcard is so beautiful i just couldn't resist posting it. the style of it is reminscent of monet or o'keefe, don't you agree? believe me, if it were in my budget it would have come home with me, even though my entire house is very vintage - i would have found a home for it.

xo, heidi
