Art in the Park 2011, Boston

I'm off soon to Boston for Saturday's Art in the Park, in Charlestown's City Square Park. The show is sponsored by the Artists Group of Charlestown, a fine group of creative people of which I am a member.
So far the weather promises to be sunny and late-summerish, which should be good for all concerned. City Square Park is a short walk from the Charlestown Navy Yard, home of the U.S.S. Constitution, and is another short walk from the Zakim Bridge and Boston Garden. The neighborhood has been up-and-coming for several years now, with lots of young couples and their golden retrievers and golden babies. Beautiful restored brick row houses, old churches, hilly streets leading up to the Bunker Hill monument, good coffee shop.
Come on up to Boston and visit. The show opens Saturday at 10 a.m. and closes at 5 p.m.

I'll take photos, Tracey. What do you want to see?
And we expect the full Whynot Pottery staff at the show tomorrow.

the rebirth of that area has been intriguing to me... i spent a year of my life driving around it while jz was going to Dana Farber and Brigham & womens for treatment... the Zakim bridge is beautiful (at least to me) and was a sign that we were heading home to NH.
a little (but just a little) out of the way is Pucker Gallery, on Newbury Street. they are so accommodating... (they have a really cool little elevator in their building that leads to extensive collections, Shoji Hamada, Brother Thomas etc...).
Hollis, i am sure you know all of this, but i am just rambling on , missing a little bit of New England tonight!

Ramble away, Michelle. The Pucker's one of my favorite places, and not that far a walk from Charlestown, under the Zakim. You're right, the revival of Charlestown is a very cool thing. It was a good show yesterday, on a sparkling autumn-like day.

photos? I don't know, anything interesting I guess :)
ps: Gerry commented this morning that the mug he got from you is the only one we have that keeps his coffee warm. It gets washed every day now!
Have fun with the Whynots!
