someone very special to me has always emphasized that art is finding beauty in something. anything.
no matter who you are, what you do or where you come from: you are an artist if you can find beauty in the world. beauty is everywhere, but you have to be awake and aware of all that surrounds you.
a cloud. church bells. a shadow. an intricate spider’s web. when you look at the clock @ 11:11. a beautifully prepared meal. a touching letter. a car built from scratch. tire swings. your grandmother’s wrinkled old hands.
the first step is merely taking the time to notice. i live my life by finding beauty in the moment and spreading light to others through the creation of art.
Midway Artist Studios are live-work spaces for artists in Boston’s Fort Point Neighborhood. These studios are fundamental to the arts in Boston, and the certification process is formidable.
Sarah Anne DiNardo’s studio, nestled in an historic brick building standing beside the dallying current of Boston's Channel is a kind of stage for her performance of making art. Her studio is where she finds her emotional center, and her art emanates from this inner peace. Surrounded by cylindrical stacks of tape, vases and found objects, Ms. Dinardo’s studio has nearly become another sculpture unto itself.
The experience is completed with music emanating from a mid-century German phonograph and the persistent scent of slowly smoldering sage.
