May 8, 2021 - MOTHER'S DAY WEEKEND (SATURDAY) at Babacool Arts & Grounds (218 Sugar Road, Bolton MA), 10am - 3pm.  I've invited other artists to join me - please see link above for a full listing of participating artists and additional details.

June 12, 2021 - SUDBURY ART ASSOCIATION'S "SPRING INTO ART" FEST - 341 Lincoln Road, Sudbury, 10am - 4pm. More info coming soon at Sudburyart.org.

SAVE THE DATE! 2021 Bolton & Harvard Open Studios is now scheduled for October 2 - 3, 2021.

SAA Holiday Market & Cancelled BAG Event

It's with a heavy heart that I have to announce that the Bolton Artisan's Guild Holiday Show & Sale, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 13 at my studio & grounds, is canceled.  It was a hard decision...but the town of Bolton is currently listed as "Red" - high risk for spreading the Coronavirus, and it seems irresponsible to risk it.  

On a brighter note, the Sudbury Art Association's Holiday Market is still happening!  We're at the same place as last year (29 Hudson Road - look for our signs!), and we're following all recommended social distancing requirements.  We even have Tuesday currently set aside for people to make appointments and have the store to themselves (with only one artist present to check them out).  Find all the details here:   https://www.sudburyart.org/holiday-market-info

Also note that while I do have a "booth" set up inside the market (yay!  I'm on the first floor this year!), I also have pieces of art at my studio that I can bring to the market for pickup.  These items are listed under the "SAA Holiday Market" tab under the "Art" tab above.  If you see something you'd like to purchase, please contact me directly at yvette@babacoolyvette.com, and we can arrange the sale (either pickup at my studio in Bolton or at the SAA Holiday Market in Sudbury).  

Happy Holidays everyone, and stay safe!

We have 19 In-Store artists this year PLUS 10 Online Artists for a record 29 this year including 7 new participants. We're opening November 13th and have many open days planned through Dec. 24th.

I have 3 big announcements for this September!

ONE - I will have three different installations in Maynard Artpace's "Metal-ity" show!  It's outside, so you can swing by anytime...the grand opening is Sept. 19th (and my installations will be in place by then).  There is a wide variety of metal art as part of this show...from new metal art student's to long-time sculptors.  Go with open eyes and hearts...I think you'll be pleasantly surprised!  Free to the public. https://www.artspacemaynard.com/

TWO - I have three panels up for display at Old Frog Pond Sculpture Walk (https://oldfrogpondfarm.com/ )  My installation is titled "Forest Hearts" and consists of three steel panels in the trees...look for them in the wooded part of the walk.  $10 admission.. it's so beautiful to walk around the pond and woods and be charmed by all the sculpture throughout, it's well-worth the price!

THREE - I am opening my studio as part of the upcoming 3rd Annual Bolton & Harvard Open Studios!  Come and see me - 218 Sugar Road, Bolton MA - on Sept. 26, 10am - 4pm (Raindate Sept 27).  I would love to see you, and I will have a lot of new art to sell for your patio, garden and/or home.  I will also be hosting a few other artists...and you can see some of the things I've been working on around my yard during this crazy COVID year!  More details about the artists participating in this event (and their locations) can be found at: http://openartstudios.org/  We really would love to see you...we're emphasizing social distancing safety so everyone enjoys themselves.

2019 is flying by!  Here is my calendar for the rest of this fall into the Holidays...

 

October 12 - 14 - Scituate Art Festival - This is a new festival for me - but it comes highly recommended by fellow artist friends so I'm giving it a try.  Come check it out...it will be fun to be in a new venue!

November - December - The Sudbury Art Association Holiday Market - once again we'll be up and running at our 29 Sudbury Location (same as last year).  Our pop-up has become incredibly popular for artists, so we have a nice variety of holiday shopping options....look for my booth on the top floor!  More details (like specific dates) can be found in the link above.

NOVEMBER 16 - BOLTON ARTISANS GUILD & FRIENDS HOLIDAY SHOW & SALE - I'm hosting his year's event in my Art Barn!  Come to my studio - I'm sharing it with friends and if weather permits, we're making a Christmas Village out of it!  Outdoor fire, holiday treats, and maybe even carolers!  Come support our small-town local artists and find some unique gifts!  218 Sugar Road, Bolton MA - 10am - 3pm

November 22 - 23 - Pro.Found Holiday Market - I'm joining the Pro.Found crew once again - this time for their holiday market!  Come do a little early holiday shopping!

December 6 - 8 - ArtSpace Holiday Sale - Once again I will be in the ArtSpace Maynard's Gallery for their annual holiday sale!  This is one of my favorite venues...wander around the halls and gallery, visit artist studios and enjoy the festive atmosphere surrounded by art!  It's wonderful!

 

I'm excited to announce the Decordova Sculpture Park and Museum invited me to be in their 2019 Holiday Market! More info to come! Here's a complete list of the stores you'll find me in this holiday season:

Avenue C at Eastleigh Farm, Framingham - I have a variety of my artwork here.  Great people - and I love their space! They have a lovely selection of artisan wares, vintage goods, and beautiful signs, all in a beautiful building on a working dairy farm. If you're lucky, they'll be selling ice cream from their cow-bus!

 

deCordova Holiday Market - I'm so excited to be invited to this for the 2019 holiday season! Come walk around the amazing sculpture park and then do a little shopping in their beautiful store! More details to come...

 

Five Crows in Natick - I would recommend swinging by here if you're ever in Natick...a very different group of artists (ranging from a little further outward) - a lovely selection with great variety.  

 

Laurel Grove in Sudbury - another really beautiful shop.  I get lost in the rooms (in a good way!) and always buy something when I'm dropping off my artwork.  

 

Nashoba Winery in my hometown, Bolton - As part of the Bolton Artisan's Guild, I have some of my pieces on the walls in the front room where they are selling the wine.  It's always fun to stop in here...do a tasting or fill your growler while you're checking out the art!

 

 6 Bridges Gallery in Maynard - another easy stop if you're in the Maynard area...it's also focused on local art in a wonderful gallery setting and there are some really beautiful things here.

I can't believe it's already time to talk about the Holidays!   Well...I might as well embrace it! I love this time of year...I find it inspiring and fun artistically, and I'm looking forward to all the upcoming Holiday shows that I'm involved in...

 

Nov. 9 - Dec. 24 - The Sudbury Art Association's Annual HOLIDAY MARKET - 29 Hudson Road, Subury MA  01776 -  I will have a place once again at the SAA Holiday Market pop-up!  With 26 artists participating (many of them new!), it will be a fun and festive place to get some really unique holiday gifts while supporting local artists!  Look for my display on the 2nd floor...more information:  http://www.sudburyart.com/

 

Nov. 30, Dec. 1 & 2 - Artspace Maynard Holiday Sale - 63 Summer Street, Maynard, MA  - I always love to have some wall space in the main gallery at ArtSpace for their annual Holiday Sale.  I've signed up again this year...it's a great place for unique holiday shopping, and a great atmosphere to walk around, have a glass of wine, and go into all the fabulous open studios.

 

Dec. 8 - Bolton Artisans Guild (BAG) HOLIDAY MARKET - at my home studio art barn at 218 Sugar Road , Bolton - on December 8th, from 11am - 3pm, I'm hosting BAG artists in my Art Barn for our annual Holiday Market!  Come enjoy the festive atmosphere, hot apple cider, and support your local artists while shopping for unique holiday gifts!

 

My Art Barn studio is currently open by appointment...send me a note if you're interested in stopping by!

 

I'm working on deliveries of new art to all of the lovely stores & galleries that I'm in, as well, for the holiday season:

Avenue C at Eastleigh Farm, Framingham - I have shovels, saws, and my bucket lamps here (and soon I'll be dropping off some ornaments).  Great people - and I love their space! They have a lovely selection of artisan wares, vintage goods, and beautiful signs.  They are only open on weekends.

Upcoming Open Studio!

Sept. 15 & 16 - Bolton & Harvard Open Studios -  Since I had such a successful Open Studio weekend last fall, I had an artist friend ask to join me with her studio if I did it again this year.  Together, we decided to invite other artists as well, and It quickly grew beyond all of our expectations-  now we have 32 participating artists and it's a destination event!  Please follow link above to find out the details, including a map of the artist locations.  Come out and support our local, small town artists, maybe stop at a farm-stand or two, and pick some apples at one or our beautiful local orchards!  My ART BARN will be open at 218 Sugar Road (Bolton)...just follow my signs (I'm on the map on the above website)!  I will have three additional artists with me (Fay Senner - Astrology art, Carol Ehrlich- Fabric Arts, and Laura Burke - Fiber Arts).  I have sculpture throughout my yard, an art labyrinth, and my family would love it if you bring your kids (if you have any!).  My sons Kai & Renn would love to show them their sheep and chickens...it should be a fun family-friendly event!
 
Other events I'm participating in:
Sept. 22 & 23 - The Pro.Found Market in Lancaster, MA - If you love vintage, you'd love the Pro.Found Market, located on Kalon Farm in Lancaster, MA.  It's a great place to hunt for great finds - also for the whole family.  Look for my tent!
 
Oct. 6 & 7 - Haunted Biz Baz Fair in Salem, MA.  One of my favorite fairs of the year!  The energy and crowds remind me of Mardi Gras - but in a spooky, Halloween way!  The costumes are amazing.  It's a fun place to check out - especially if you love Halloween and want to get inspired for it in early October!  I will have a lot of Halloween-themed art for this one (sugar skulls, witches, skeletons...)!
 
Nov. 30, Dec. 1 & 2 - Artspace Maynard Holiday Sale - I always love to have some wall space in the main gallery at ArtSpace for their annual Holiday Sale.  I've signed up again this year...it's a great place for unique holiday shopping, and a great atmosphere to walk around, have a glass of wine, and go into all the fabulous open studios.
 
Last but not least - I will once again be participating in the Sudbury Art Association's Holiday Market - likely to be in the same place as last year (we're a pop-up, so that's assuming the space is available in November and December) in the Sudbury 29 complex.  More details to come...and can be found at www.sudburyart.com as the time approaches.
 
I hope to see you at one of the above events!
