Sunday, June 9, 2019: Fresh Paint Springfield Wrap

A dozen artists — one from as far away as Australia — assorted friends, and a supporting cast of residents from ages 3–103, have just finished making Springfield a little more lively and a lot more beautiful than it was two weeks ago. From May 26 until today, nine previously nondescript walls bordering on eyesore status were transformed into vibrant murals through the alchemy of artistic vision and labor, and countless gallons and spray cans of paint — not to mention, a box store full of brushes, rollers, and masking tape, and enough paint-splattered clothes to start a new fashion label. You can get the full picture at Fresh Paint Springfield but in the meantime, here is Pixetera‘s admittedly limited take on what amounted to one big paint party. (Click on images to enlarge.) 

Mural artists in order of appearance:

#2-5: Wane One

#6-9: Colectivo Morivivi

#10-12: Kim Carlino

Thursday, November 15, 2018: Open Studios (Part Two: Stairwells)

The following images were taken at two open studio events in western Massachusetts this month: one at Eastworks in Easthampton, the other at Indian Orchard Mills in Springfield. The main attraction, of course, was the chance to see lots of art, talk with its creators, and check out their work spaces. Photography-wise though, what drew my attention was the old industrial mill buildings themselves, repurposed now to serve artists, craftsmen, and small businesses, but still showing signs of age in their details and public spaces. Yesterday, windows; today, stairwells. (Please click on images to enlarge.)
