Founded in October 2011, we are Dedham’s first artist cooperative, owned and operated by its 20 members. We provide members of the cooperative a home for their work and opportunity to connect with the community, while striving to enrich the cultural life of all residents, through classes, workshops, art openings and more. The collection of work at the Guild encompasses a diverse style of art, including painting, photography, pottery, jewelry, monotype, wood, glass, textile and much more.

Custom Art Framing & Gallery 9 ~ 45 Central Street, Norwood, MA  www.customartframing.com

Custom Art Framing has been a Norwood fixture since 2003. Julie Vecchio brings years of picture framing expertise to a unique customer-service centered frame shop. In 2007 the shop’s gallery added to it’s focus on affordable artwork by local artists with the creation of Gallery9. With this expansion comes fun and exciting opportunities for artists and art collectors to interact, face to face, with our First Friday Artist Reception series. Currently at Gallery9 and Custom Art Framing you’ll find the most unique designs in custom picture framing, as well as, art classes for kids and adults, workshops, monthly artist events and the most fabulous little art gallery around.

Valentine’s Day ~ Shop Local

Here in New England, we are being hit hard by snow.  Small businesses that count on holidays like Valentine’s Day to boost their sales in February are especially impacted. Snow means customers don’t want to venture out in the cold and turn to their computers to “order in” from big stores. Shop locally this season or call a small business and ask for an item to be shipped; it really will make a difference.

Where can you find Lisa W B Walker pottery? Shopping local means just west of Boston, MA.

Small Business Saturday ~ November 29th

What is Small Business Saturday?
Sandwiched between “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday”, SBS is a day to pledge to “shop small” and support independently owned businesses in the Square and around town. Amex is even offering an added incentive to shop small today!

Why does it matter?
Money spent at a small, independently owned business stays in the same community at a rate of three times more than when it is spent at a chain store. Shopping locally is investing in your community.

Please shop small today at the following shops and galleries who sell my ceramics:

Boston Globe reports:

BOSTON — The annual sales tax holiday in Massachusetts would be held Aug. 16-17 under a bill released by a legislative committee of conference on Wednesday evening.

The sales tax holiday was included in an economic development bill, which is among the last major pieces of legislation being considered before the legislative session ends for the year on Thursday.

Rep. Joseph Wagner, a Chicopee Democrat and chairman of the Joint Committee on Economic Development and Emerging Technologies, said that sales tax holiday “is significant for the Commonwealth’s economy.”
