Joe and I stumbled out our front door yesterday, late for church, only to be confronted by frolicking art fair on our street. Usually we are on Nantucket this time of year so this was our first encounter with the Beacon Hill art walk.

The best thing about the walk was the free chance to wander in the back alleyways and gardens of Beacon Hill; spaces that are usually blocked off by gates and narrow passageways.

Our favorite artist was Isabelle Abramson’s porcelains. They looked beautiful set out in light dappled courtyard off Philips Street. I particularly wanted a pair of her elegant hole-speckled votives.

Definitely mark it on your calendars for next year if you missed it yesterday.
