Alison appeared on local Boston tv show

chronicle

CHECK OUT this clip from Chronicle, which aired last Friday night on Boston’s WCVB-tv. The show was about fine art photography, past and present, and they interviewed three photographers at the Focus Gallery in Cohasset. Alison did a great job, but the best part is at around the 6-minute mark. One of the anchors asked about that technique “Alice” uses, and the other, Anthony Everett, corrected the name and beautifully described Alison’s style.

Alison on HGTV: her photos are in 2015 Dream House

A few months ago, we got a call from the designers at HGTV, asking to come by the gallery. They’d already bought two of Alison’s photos from the Granary Gallery in West Tisbury, and were interested in seeing more. We loved meeting them, and were thrilled when they bought two more pieces for the brand new 2015 HGTV Dream House in Katama, here on Martha’s Vineyard. The network produced an entire episode about the architect, builder, and designers who collaborated on the property, and the local artists whose work is exhibited within.

Right now, there’s so much snow out front, we’d forgotten what the lawn looks like!

Here are a few photos (below) they took of Alison’s artwork hanging in the house…

Speak French? Alison’s in this video about the Vineyard

alison on french tv

Alison appears from 1.30 to the 2.00-minute-mark in this video about Martha’s Vineyard. The producers were particularly interested in the celebrities here, including President Obama. Alison’s saying we pretty much leave them alone, which is one reason why it’s a great retreat for them. She’s pointing out the locations in People magazine where paparazzi have taken photos of celebrities – you really don’t see photos from the Vineyard in these mags. They told Alison that you’d never see this in France, where celebrities are followed constantly, and are never left to themselves.This is one more thing we love about our home.

Lew French (and I) are featured on CBS Sunday Morning

CBS NEWS SUNDAY MORNING did this wonderful segment on the book Stone by Design, featuring the artistry of Lew French, and a short interview with me as well.

CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Kuralt once did a segment on my first book, Remembrance and Light, with author Henry Beetle Hough and me – must’ve been 1984, when the book came out.
