I just returned from a trip up to Providence, RI. My cousin Marsha was participating in the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) Annual Holiday Art Festival. I was lucky enough to tag along and experience the festival first hand. It was such a treat because I had never been to Providence and found myself charmed by the small New England city.
The festival hosted some wonderful and interesting vendors. There was a lot of jewelry, ceramics, and glass. Therefore, Marsha’s sculptural, metal work stood out from the crowd.
Her bowls are probably her most signature piece, but, in recent years, Marsha has started to branch out into jewelry.
I’m probably biased towards her items because she is family. None the less, the festival was awesome and I can’t wait to find a reason to spend more time in Providence.
Marsha is planning on having a studio sale next weekend (Dec. 12th). She works in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn.
She’s been trying to convince me to give welding a try. However, because of my clumsy tendencies, I think it is best if I stay away from the heavy machinery. In the meantime, I’m content to admire her artwork.
