The Fenway Community Development Corporation, Once Again, Tempts the Community’s Taste Buds!

 

Alan, Nan + Lynda

On September 21st, 2017, the Fenway neighborhood experienced another delectable and incredibly deeeeelicious fun and festive evening during the annual, ‘Taste of the Fenway,’ (TOTF) hosted by the non-profit organization, Fenway Community Development Corporation (FCDC). For over four-decades the FCDC has been dedicated to creating a positive impact on housing and economic concerns throughout the neighborhood; and the enormously successful TOTF is the event in which Fenway Studios always looks forward to its participation.

Nan with aspiring young artists


Friends of Fenway Studios founding president, Lynda McNally, coordinated with the TOTF’s dynamic event organizer, Iris Tan, and this year she shared the TOTF both with Fenway Studios artist, Nan Hass Feldman, and her husband, poet, Alan Feldman, resulting in a very lively, and creatively interactive evening for everyone. “It is such a joyful experience seeing children explore their artistic side,” said Nan as she welcomed all the aspiring young artists to try their hand at working with her pastels and water color paints.
We sincerely thank all our friends at the FCDC for this spectacular opportunity, and for their unwavering commitment to the Fenway neighborhood. We are already counting down the days (but never counting the calories) until next year’s fantastic food festival in the Fenway!

Fenway Studios artists raise their voices in thanks to
Friends of Fenway Studios for underwriting the raising of the OPEN STUDIOS banners.



To herald the arrival of the annual Fenway Studios OPEN STUDIOS Weekend Celebration, Friends of Fenway Studios (the non-profit organization) has generously funded five sets of custom, Open Studios, banners. Founding FOFS president, Lynda McNally, shared the exciting news of the board’s approval of her proposal for the banner project, “They immediately understood the promotional impact the banners would create; and they agreed the banners provided a great opportunity to visually welcome the public to Fenway Studios.” The impressive banners stand tall at the corner of Mass Ave and Boylston Street, as well as at the corner of Boylston and Hemenway, and directly in front of Fenway Studios, 30 Ipswich Street.

Professional photographer and graphic designer, Anastasia Bogushevsky-Gareginyan created the striking banner images. “Anastasia really captured the imposing architectural construction of Fenway Studios,” remarked FOFS president Vcevy Strekalovsky, “and the production and installation of the banners was effortless working with local manufacturer, Accent Banner.”
In addition to featuring over twenty gifted and diverse artists during Open Studios, Fenway Studios also annually hosts a food drive to benefit the tremendous work by the, Greater Boston Food Bank. If possible, we would be grateful if you could bring a non-perishable food item(s) when you visit, thank you so very much and we look forward to seeing you in November.
