Artist Riki Moss wasn’t planning on calling Somerville home for too long, but more than a decade has gone by, and Moss is enjoying being a member of the local arts community. It was 1995 when she first came to Somerville.
“I thought I’d just be here for a little while when I left Vermont,” said Moss. “But it right away made me feel like (I was in) Brooklyn. And I didn’t realize that I was nostalgic for Brooklyn.”
Born in Brooklyn, N.Y. and prior to Somerville living in Vermont, artwork and lifestyle have a bit of two places close to her heart. Living in Somerville reminds her of her Brooklyn days. And her art shows signs of Vermont, where she still has a cabin in the woods, even though she resides with her husband, Robert, in Somerville’s Brickbottom Artists Building.
