I would like to invite you to the opening reception of Emergence, the 2021 outdoor sculpture exhibit on August 1st, 1-5 pm at Old Frog Pond Farm and Studio in Harvard, MA. The reception is free and open to the public. I have a grouping of my art pieces as part of this sculpture walk...look for them on the magical trail through this beautiful property...
 

If you can't make it this Sunday, Emergence will continue to be open Thursdays-Sundays; 11-4 pm through October 4th. Walk the trails around the pond and through the woods and enjoy more than 40 outdoor sculptures by artists from all over New England. The self-guided tour takes about an hour. Adults $10; Seniors $8; and children under 12 are free. Please note that dogs/pets are not allowed.

SUMMER 2021

I have a few things going on this summer that I wanted to share.
 
Next Saturday, June 12th I will have a tent at the only art fair I will be at this summer...come and see me and 40 other fabulous artists!:
SPRING INTO ART!  The Sudbury Art Association (SAA) is hosting a late-spring art fair
Date:  Saturday, June 12th - Rain-date Sunday June 13
Time:  10am - 4pm
Location:  SAA Member Rozsi Moser's yard at 341 Lincoln Road, Sudbury MA
 
 
OLD FROG POND FARM & STUDIO Sculpture Walk - I am excited to announce that I will have an outdoor public sculpture in the 15th annual Sculpture Walk at the Old Frog Pond Farm & Studio in Harvard, MA (not far from my studio!).  The sculpture walk is available to experience from August 1 - October 9 (and check out their amazing farmstand too!).   ​If you haven't visited here, I would highly recommend it.  It's the only organic apple orchard in Massachusetts, and their sculpture walk on a trail through their woods is a magical experience.  I'm so happy to be a part of it!  https://oldfrogpondfarm.com/
 
 
Finally, for the rest of the summer I will be working on my OLD CAR PROJECT.  I'm also very excited about this...it's been a dream of mine to cut a design into an old vehicle that has been retired, while keeping the lovely lines of the vehicle completely intact (and save it from the crusher in the process).  The universe answered my wish and provided me with a beauty!  I will be posting my progress later this summer on social media - look up "Babacool Arts" on Instagram and Facebook and follow me to see how it goes!  Or see it in person at one of my studio events this fall!

I am so happy to announce that I will be in several events coming up soon!  COVID considerations (CDC recommendations) will be taken in account at all events:

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.

SAA Holiday Market & Cancelled BAG Event

Posted
on November 7th, 2020

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!

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.
