I've Moved!

Big news...I've moved to Bolton, Massachusetts!  We love Sudbury, but we were renting.  In addition,  I have been dreaming for a long time of having my studio space, so for the past year we've been looking at the beautiful old (200-year old) farms coming up for sale within commuting distance of my husband's work...these often provide outbuildings that would be perfect for creating a new art studio  Well, this summer we found one that is only 10 miles from where we lived in Sudbury, and it's absolutely beautiful.  AND it has an amazing old barn that is perfect for my studio!  So we are moving in now and I hope to be up and running within weeks!  More to come...I hope to have a display area ready by next spring.

Mass Audubon's Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary invited me to display my nature-inspired shovel art throughout their farm on Friday, November 27th this year - the day after Thanksgiving, for their "Giving Thanks" celebration.  I'm thrilled...my shovels will be on trees, on fenceposts, and on the farm buildings throughout the sanctuary!  I'm particularly happy to be working with such a wonderful organization and showing off my shovels as I picture them displayed when I'm creating them (i.e. outside on barns and trees)!  It sounds like it will be a wonderful festival...please check their website for more information:  http://www.massaudubon.org/get-outdoors/wildlife-sanctuaries/drumlin-farm

You are cordially invited to my Open Art Studio, the weekend of October 17 - 18, 2015.  Since my artwork is designed to handle the outdoor elements, I will have my artwork displayed around my yard in the way I personally would display it.  Everything will be available for purchase, although no purchase is required...please just stop by and say "Hi"!  I will also have my metal working tools out so you can see what I used to create my artwork.

My Open Art Studio is in affiliation with the SUDBURY ART ASSOCIATION's "Art Around Town" weekend.  There will be other open art studios and Sudbury artists selling their artwork at the Sudbury Town Hall and Grange.  More information can be found at: http://www.sudburyart.com/event/art-around-town/

My studio is located at 563 Hudson Road, Subury, MA 01776.   Please note that although this a Hudson Road address, my driveway is located on Ronald Road.  Watch for signs!  Please contact me if you have any questions (yvette@babacoolyvette.com).  Thank you and I hope to see you!

Newly updated calendar...there are a few changes!
