Even though it seems a bit late to send an invitation for Sunday, Dec 16, anytime from noon to 5pm, who knows what your plans are for this day? In any case, like last year, David Harris and I will be showing our works in his house, 151 Sharon Street in West Medford, and if you feel like it, please come and see us. We will have drinks and foods for you, and the fireplace burning if the weather allows it. We had a good time last year when we did it, so we decided we would do it again this year.
Of course, it would be easier for us to plan the day if you were telling us you will come, so please send us a note if you think you will, even if you end up doing something else.
Otherwise, I'll also have two shows at the Burren in Davis Square for the remaining of December, and one once a month in Cambridge from January to April 2013 (see below)
I also plan to use the quieter Winter months to finish the 2nd book of Images, Voyages, Impressions, a never ending project it seems! All the 52 stories are now written, but I still need to translate them in French -it helps me refine the English version- and work on the layout for the printed version and the Ebook one. Then Olivier and I could plan some more readings like the one we had last week at the Université Populaire, as it was a good experience (Olivier is a friend of mine and my ebooks editor, if you wonder) I'll keep you posted if it happens.
Finally, if you are intrigued by the images I put in this newsletter, I call them fotoprints and they are fairly new creations. It started when I went to Hull last October to take pictures of the town. I wanted to have local images for a gallery that carries some of my work there, however, as none of them were interesting by themselves, I decided to combine them, played with layers, contrasts and colors, got this result, and liked what I saw. Since then, I have used photos of Boston and Cambridge to create some more images of that kind. What do you think?
You'll tell me when I see you, if not, have a good Holiday Season, and all my best for 2013.
The details of the upcomings shows are below as usual, and there is always my website www.lecomtedominique.com if you want to see what I am doing, access my Facebook or Twitter page, read a blog (nothing new since June however), and so on.
Saturdays, December 8 & 15, Somerville: I'll be at The Burren, 247 Elm St in Davis St for two of their Saturday Local Artists Markets, noon to 4pm in the back room. I'll mainly bring small pieces as the space is limited.
Sunday, December 16, Medford: from 1pm to 5pm, I 'll be 151 Sharon St at David's and Janet's house for a two persons home show featuring David's photos and my work, plus drinks and food.
Saturdays, January 12, February 9, March 9, April 6, Cambridge: The dates are not confirmed yet, but I should be at the Cambridge Winter Farmers Market (I like selling in markets!) 5 Callender St (inside the gymnasium of Cambridge Community Center) from 10am to 2pm.
