This is an important question. Ive been thinking a lot about this lately. As someone who has moved a few times and is often thinking about "where should I go next?", I believe that location and identity are absolutely connected.
The folks over at Sweetgum Textiles have also been thinking about location a lot. In fact, they have been working on this new project called "PLACE...in the Making".
I am very honored and excited to be included in this project, which is a celebration of New England makers and artisans. The printed publication, which will issue its first edition this fall, is an exploration of what makes a “Sense of Place”.
The goal is to create a beautiful collection of stories and products that capture the character New England. My piece showing Lowell MAwill be featured in the publication, along with other work from local makers. Contributors to the publication & market include local architects, photographers, printers, potters, textile designers, painters, wood workers, soap makers, and more.

Description from Merchant:
Each one of our pieces is created by developing a series of hand-drawn layers, with its own intended purpose for the whole. Each layer is a sketch, painting or drawing that is made independently, using various artistic mediums in a way that makes it compliment the other layers. These layers are then digitally combined to make a single final piece. The final piece is then produced as a high-quality print on paper or canvas.
