Vive la Somerville Open Studios!
Somerville Open Studios is an event not to be missed. 401 artists in twelve hours? That gives you 1 minute, 47 seconds to see each artist. Good luck! No one hu-man can possibly see it all without the aid of time travel devices. If you don’t have one handy, check out the Somerville Museum: they’ve got the artist’s choice exhibit, which acts as a targeting computer for your brand of talent. Romer is there, posting watch.

Got the robots. Got the rayguns. Got the rocketships. Come meet my fetching new Jupiter Class Astrobot; he’s not done, and not yet named; but he plans on being online by Saturday 1200 hours,. And for those who love beer as much as art, come and try the XO of SCUL’s homebrew: he’s an expert and you will not be disappointed.

SCUL has moved! We have now joined forces with the Artisan’s Asylum. From the ‘about us’ page:
Artisan’s Asylum, Inc. is a non-profit community craft studio located near Union Square in Somerville, Massachusetts.
Our mission is to support and promote the teaching, learning and practicing of craft of all varieties. To support that mission, we intend to offer the following:
- A fully equipped and professionally maintained manufacturing facility, which will include but is not limited to precision metal machining, electrical fabrication, welding, woodworking, fabricwork, cooking, painting, photography, jewelrymaking and more.
- Monthly and daily membership plans for the general public to access said facility on weekends and after working hours to encourage DIY culture and community craftsmanship
- A large range of affordable, publicly-accessible classes offered by local artisans, either focusing on creating a final product the student can take home after the class or general training for specific tools
- Affordable daytime space and equipment rental to local professional artists and businesspeople interested in having access to industrial-grade manufacturing equipment and a dedicated manufacturing environment without having to invest in capital equipment and long-term space leases
- On-site material storage and resale and on-site project storage, allowing community members to create and store projects without the hassle of handling material and storage logistics
- Hosting and promotion of local craft-related events
Take a look at the Classes. I’m teaching three TIG welding classes. Friday nights are still open.
As promised, here’s a look at the trophies commissioned for IFF Boston.
The fine folks of IFF Boston commissioned me to make actor Kevin Kline his career achievement award.
