Western, MA on Saturday – stART on the Street on Sunday
Phew! I just got back from a whirl-wind Massachusetts weekend. A weekend which included a trip to the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art and a visit to stART on the Street – an awesome annual craft fair in Worcester, MA.
D. wanted to see Flight into Fantasy: The Kendra and Allan Daniel Collection of Children’s Illustration at the Eric Carle Museum. I could not believe the breadth of the Daniel Collection – a private collection. I have to admit that I did not get the opportunity to really admire the works because Wee-One was antsy, but I am fortunate enough to have brought home the exhibition catalog. I also picked up A Year in Japan by Kate Williamson.
I hope to secret away some time to take a close look at this beautiful artist journal some time soon!
Then on Sunday our super-awesome hosts took us to stART on the Street, an annual block party featuring 275 artisians selling their wares, along with bands, street fair food, and kids activities.
We picked up a couple very cool items. Of course I could not avoid picking up some letterpress stationery.
These were from Paper Wren – “where vintage meets modern.”
And D. and I both fell in love with this print.
The vendor is Thirteenth Story. The artist, Jaye, included a zine that she makes that is only available at craft fairs. Also on my to sit down and read list!
I saw so much more but I really just need to hit the publish button and take care of Wee-One right now. I hope you all had wonderful weekends too!
