Recap: Spring Open Studios at the Distillery

(The work of Nick Ward)

This past Sunday, the Spring Open Studios at the Distillery began at 12:00:00pm EST.

At 11:59:59am EST the monsieur and I were already in the lot, ready to spring into action.

It was our official moving day and had less than 30 minutes to blow through the building before dashing home to the movers.

Me, armed with my awkward gift of gab – He, armed with a shaky cell phone camera took on the Open Studios at full force, at times literally sprinting through the halls to try and stop by as many studios as we could.

It was well worth the blood sweat and tears.

The Distillery is innately one of the coolest buildings in Boston, but when you fill it with passionate, talented and engaging artists it takes it the studios to a whole other level.

Many early career artisans inhabit The Distillery and their works seemed to be imbued with that young and vibrant creative energy. Everyone was friendly, welcoming and eager to talk about their pursuits.

I had such a great time and was sad I couldn’t stay longer.

For those of you I met/re-met, hi! For those of you I didn’t have a chance to meet, let’s fix that.
