We're so pleased to share! Lincoln Public Library presents, Studio Days: A Memoir by AWA's own Suzanne Hodes, this Saturday, June 10th, from 2-3:30pm in the Tarbell Room.
Studio Days is about the creative process she has experienced in her 50 year career as an artist. Her work is in over 600 collections. Ms. Hodes will share how she combined family life and peace activism with her art career.
She will show several dozen images from her memoir as they relate to her story and the shared stories of our time; from the Kennedy & King assassinations to the attacks of September 11th.
Ms. Hodes will also speak on what has inspired her work and the creation of "Artists for Survival" which was devoted to supporting the nuclear freeze and several other social justice causes.
Limited number of copies of Studio Days will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
Don't miss it! Lincoln Public Library, 3 Bedford Road, Lincoln, MA.
As raw space was transformed in October 1980, the first ten artists of the newly developed Artists West Association presented their work to the public during Art Week in Waltham, Massachusetts. After a year of searching for effective working space and community, the second floor of a historic mill building beside the Charles River was given new direction and purpose. Where once workers and machines processed textiles from raw materials, sculptors, fiber artists, painters, printmakers and photographers found space and time to create works of art.
Today, the fifteen studios of Artists West Association continue to be a place for possibilities. Surrounded and part of the artists of the Waltham Mills Artists Association, AWA is a community-- a diverse, creative hive, where long stretches of solitude and focus encounter bursts of inspiration and lively exchange. A sanctuary, with good light and great vibes. The space itself is a historic medium which supports our dreams, our work, and the productive continuum of making in this place.

AWA welcomes its newest member, Lynda Schlosberg. An abstract painter, her work draws from quantum theories and philosophies. In her own words, she "aims to depict an imaginal realm where all natural and unnatural forces collapse into a vibrating energy that can materialize into one of an infinite number of potential realties." Her work has been published and shown throughout New England, and we are delighted to add her to our ranks.
