We love the arts! Art museums, art galleries, art shows, art walks. A key step in our creative process is surrounding ourselves with art and scheduling creative exploration into our routines. We were thrilled to participate in our first Light Up the Arts Holiday Bash last night which followed a black and white theme with all manner of creative costumings. As a fundraiser for Easthampton City Arts, the night included the Small Works Show and Sale featuring three of our holiday items, a silent auction, rovers with surprise gift boxes and a hilarious live auction. Wine was served from Black Birch Vineyards of Southampton, MA , beer from Abandoned Building Brewery of Easthampton, MA and tasty treats from Myer’s Catering. We enjoyed exploring the many great silent auction items and were the highest bidders and winners for a weekend in the Catskills and an aromatherapy spa basket!
Some of our favorite art museums include MASS MoCA, MoMA, and the Smith College Museum of Art. We are always open to new and interesting places and welcome any ideas. This weekend we are looking forward to exploring more beautiful local art and talent at Cottage Street Holiday Open Studios. We’ll be posting eye-catching pieces to our instagram @papersoilsamples, so be sure to follow us for your own online art tour!
