DSAG is 5 years old!

This Saturday, October 1st from 6:00 to 8:00PM the Dedham Square Artist Guild will celebrate their 5 year anniversary.  It is exciting to reach this milestone and a thrill to have been part of the team that got us here!


Join the Dedham Square Artists for an evening of celebration. Purchase local art directly from the artists. Hear the music of Nick Vecchio and the real school of music who will perform throughout the evening.  There will be a raffle!, cake, food and refreshments.


Best of all are the artists: Kerry Hawkins, Gary Koeppel, Cindy Mootz, Fred Smith, Gillian Jackson, Sue Hoy, Rali Weaver, Jill Barry, Barbara Trainer, Zelayna Rauch, Kevin Becker, Matt Miller, Mark Dooley, Wendy Birchmire, Sandrine, Alice Donaldson, Dennis Stein, Gretje Ferguson, Mona Podgursky, and Lisa WB Walker.

What’s new in the gallery from me?


I created a collection of low fire pottery over the summer using Amaco Artist Choice and Opalescent glazes to bring out texture, and  Gare Fun Strokes for creating images by layering glazes on bisqueware. All of my ceramics are food safe and one-of-a-kind wheel thrown and/or handbuilt by me.

Makers Day

Westwoimg_1664od Artists, (photographer Karen Cagan, fiber artist Kathy Zola and ceramic artist Lisa W B Walker) arrived at Powisset Farm early on August 27th to set up their stations and begin creating art inspired by the farm.

This was the first Makers Day held at Powisset Farm.  It included visual artists as well as music (by My Mothers Moustache), performances (scenes from Shakespeare’s Hamlet by Medfield Gazebo Players), food (baking bread in the kitchen) and interactive kids activities. All artists were inspired by Powisset Farm.

As a ceramic artist, I am inspired by the vegetation that grows at the farm. I gathered herbs and other leaves from the fields, placed them on low fire clay and added colored slips. I love the way the clay captures the texture of a leaf!


I found compositions to create into functional objects in my demonstration … some small dishes and ornaments.  My favorite leaves turned out to be a sunflower leaf and a tomato plant’s leafy vine. Other interesting leaves were sage, green bean leaves and parsley.

This collection is still in process, but I will be at the farm with my permanent collection of functional pottery this coming Saturday. My work references nature and leaves; flowers and growth are important elements in my permanent collections. Stop in to say hello and enjoy this beautiful Trustees of the Reservation property.

About the Artists
Sue Hoy

“As an artist, I am trying to capture the spirit of my subject by reducing details
and concentrating on light and shape. My paintings are rich in color and
bold in brushwork. I am inspired by nature’s beauty and the chance to interpret
it in simple, yet compelling ways.”

Sue Hoy is a painter, graphic designer and art teacher living in Milton MA.
Her inspiration comes from her family and the endless beauty of New England.
Choosing subjects that capture attention and emotion, Sue strives to simplify shape
and color to reflect the essence of her subject. Her voyage toward simplicity,
versus over-working and illustrating with paint, is ongoing. Her paintings have
been in numerous shows in Massachusetts and she currently has a solo show at
Abby Park in Milton, MA. She teaches painting and clay classes for children
in the Milton public schools and at Milton Art Center.

Lisa WB Walker

I fell in love with a color: Robin’s egg blue; and, it defined summer for me.
Early morning bird calls greet a warm rising sun that announces day break.
Watch the soft wind blowing a sheer textured curtain as you lay blinking sleep from
your eyes. You are young, free from school, and you feel what summer really is.

Lisa W. B. Walker is an Artist working in clay who lives in Westwood, Massachusetts.
She creates wheel thrown or hand built functional ware to explore surface decoration
in order to create one of a kind original work. Lisa received her Studio Art Degree
from Skidmore College, continuing with additional classes at the Museum School
of Fine Arts Boston and the Art Institute of Boston. She writes a weekly blog,

Summer Pottery

Summer pottery class with older students in grades 3-6 were taught techniques to create work in clay.  The older students were able to understand and grasp concepts in a different way than the younger students.  Sometimes they were more hesitant to take chances, but when they did, they were rewarded. Their finished pieces show maturity and understanding of skills.  Here is a look at a few of my favorite pieces from this 4 day summer pottery camp at Newton Community Education.

These imaginative students were a thoughtful group who found joy in creating with clay – yipee!
