Leslie Lewis Sigler solo Art Show opens tomorrow at Jane Deering Gallery

Jane Deering Gallery is pleased to present Leslie Lewis Sigler | Once Removed opening on 

Thursday August 4th with a reception with the artist from 5-7pm.  

Sigler writes:

“In my work I explore family objects — individual silver heirlooms that are related to one another in a single collection and, collectively, to the individual families that put them into domestic practice and social circulation. I’m interested in the histories and lifespans of these objects, their ability to reflect our own personal life stories and family histories, and the way they continue to connect us to one another in time and space.”

School Street Sunflower Field Open

One of the 3 sunflower fields from School Street Sunflowers has opened in Ipswich at 18 School St right behind the high school. This field does not require tickets but does offer cut-your-own sunflowers for $2 each. The other 2 fields will require admission when they open later in the summer, so stay tuned. Their Facebook page adds that Goat Yoga is also available every Sunday and those tickets are available here. It’s hard not to smile and feel peaceful when you are facing a field of sunflowers, so maybe stop by when you can. Yes, I took Keith and Aretha……..
