“Prelude” meta blue green collection by Lisa W B Walker

Dedham Square Artist Guild, a cooperative artist gallery, is home to 25 working artists. I’ve been a member of Dedham Square Artist Guild for just about 3 years.  The artists staff the gallery, so every time you go into the guild, you meet one of the DSAG artists.  Artists work in paint, photography, encaustic, wood, glass, clay, mosaic, textile and jewelry.  The gallery is filled with one of a kind art to make gift giving a unique experience.

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.”

NEXT Clay Class for Kids is Monday, January 27th at 3:30 – last day to register is Friday, January 24th


Kids Clay Class is Monday, January 27th - last day to register is Friday, January 24th

The Dedham Square Artist Guild has teamed up with the Dedham Community House to offer art classes. My next Clay Class for Kids is Monday, January 27th – last day to register is Friday, January 24th.

Clay Class for Kids (first grade and older) will be a “Valentine’s Day” themed class. Last year I taught my students to create a pinch pot that they decorated, some made heart shaped bowls. There was also an opportunity to make a flat tile so that students could play with surface elements like stamping and adding clay elements. Using non-toxic red and white paint, students decorated their work.


For this year’s class, we may try something different.

I clear coat the students works of art and fire them in a kiln (at Potters Place, my cooperative studio in Walpole). Finished artwork will be available toward the end of February at the Dedham Square Artist Guild Gallery, 553 High Street in Dedham Square.

I am hosting additional clay classes and those are listed on my website.
