The Weekender: June 14-16

the weekender

Wow – we cannot believe that it is already the middle of June! We will be happy to say goodbye to the rain we have been having the last few days and enjoy the blues skies forecast for this weekend! Sunday we will be appreciating our amazing dad even more than usual – thanks to all the great fathers out there!

Green Thumb. On Saturday, the South End Garden Tour offers a chance to see how people use their urban outdoor space. The route includes tiny patios, rooftop gardens, and community spaces. Participants can end the day at their wine and art reception.

Road Trip. It can feel so great to get out of the city on the weekend, especially if the location involves being beachside! This Saturday, more than 80 artists, including over a dozen from Boston, will be at Art on the Green, an annual art exhibit and market at the Village Green in Plymouth. Works will include paintings, wood and glass art, sculptures, photography, and jewelry – the event also features music and kid’s activities. A great stop on your Saturday adventure!

Old School. The Boston Early Music Festival is on-going, making this weekend a great time to go unplugged. Events include performances of Almira, an opera written by Handel when he was only 19.

Sign Up. This weekend the Institute of Contemporary Art is hosting artist Josh Luke and Meredith Kasabian, a blogger and hand-painted sign historian (bet you’ve never met one of those before!). Together they founded Best Dressed Signs, the Boston-based hand painted sign company. Join them both for a workshop on hand painting signs at the ICA. Later in the day,  Meredith will be leading a gallery talk focusing on sign painting in the Barry McGee exhibit.
