Erika Lutrino and I, representing AANE and the Artist's Collaborative, had a space at the Davis Square-Somerville, Massachusetts ARTBEAT event on Saturday, July 19. The weather was perfect. Somerville is close to Boston and Cambridge. It was a lot of work getting our art and equipment set up at the event - no nearby parking! But it was a great way to meet new customers as well as other artists. I also saw some old friends/neighbors - one took this great picture.
It was a massive event - arts, crafts, food, music, activities -etc. Because of our afiliation we were in the Non-Profits section. We each had displays of our own artwork (here's a photo of me with my exhibit) but also did a lot of outreach about AANE - Asperger's Association of New England - the Organization which offers services, support, and educational resources to professionals and families/individuals affected by Asperger's Syndrome and related Autistic Spectrum Disorders. Erika and I both belong to the AANE Artists' Collaborative. AANE has a large on-site Art Gallery in Watertown which displays and sells our work.
