First Friday in March, Opportunity to Preview Gorge Artists Open Studios
March 2, 2012
A quick update to let you know I’m still alive and producing art, packing it up and delivering it!
This week I delivered work to The Pines Wine Tasting and Gallery in Hood River OR for a preview show of the Gorge Artists Open Studios Tour. The opening is tonight from 6 to 8 p.m., at Second and State and the show runs through the end of this month. You’ll have the first opportunity to purchase our cool new maps for your self guided tour, April 13, 14, 15. Notice, the tour is THREE days this year! That will give you extra time to tour all our studios plus a bonus night in the Columbia River Gorge, surrounded by inspirational and magnificent vistas. If you’ve followed my blog for awhile, you know where most of those vistas are. If you haven’t, just leave a comment or send me a note and I’ll be happy to share some of my favorite haunts.
Also celebrating our Gorge Artists Open Studios Tour during the month of March is the Columbia Gorge Hotel! They are hosting artwork from a group of us in the lobby and in their Valentino Lounge. There will be some other interesting events at the hotel this year, stay tuned!
The majority of my time the last couple of weeks was spent preparing for the Glass Craft & Bead Expo in Las Vegas March 28 – April 1st! I’ve been ordering supplies, glass, and kilns, for some fun new classes in addition to Exploring Glass Powders (the one day condensed version of Powderology). Shimmer Shine and Sparkle was filled so we added a second class that’s still available! I also have room for more students in Color Theory for Glassists and I’d love to see you in this color-filled class! Are you going to the Expo? What classes are you taking?
Back to cutting glass and packing, I’ll see you at the party tonight!
