where to find me in May

It's finally spring! And that means that me and the Happy Camper Mobile Art Gallery are hitting the road. 

the Happy Camper at SoWa Open Market in Boston

Opening day at the SoWa Open Market was fantastic. If you have never been, I highly recommend checking it out. SoWa is Boston's premiere indie art & craft market featuring talented artisans from all over New England. But that's not all.  They also have a fleet--yes a FLEET--of fabulous, gourmet food trucks, a farmers market and an indoor vintage market.  Sundays from 10am to 4pm

You can find me parked downtown for this year's Keene Art Walk. Always a fun night out for everyone--all the local businesses open up their windows for artists to display their work--and many have a reception with food and drink. There's also live music and perhaps some other entertainment the organizers are cookin' up.  The Happy Camper will be in front of Fireworks Restaurant at 22 Main Street.

Some select pieces from my recent Appalachian Spring series are on display this month at Equilibrium in Brattleboro, Vermont.  Equilibrium is a 'Positive Lifestyle Environment' that aims to Balance Our Lives by providing a space that nurtures art, culture, community & personal well-being.  Plus, their gallery space is gorgeous--stop by sometime! (they also have a yummy vegan cafe)

So, without further ado---here's the scoop on where to find me.
