Coming Up ~ Fall Art Shows!
October 17, 2014
Flying by the seat of my pants to catch up, I stayed outside too long with my camera. Now I’m buried in my studio working as fast as I can producing new art glass home decor, jewelry and garden art for upcoming fall shows. The first is our first – the inaugural White Salmon Fall Art Tour takes place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, October 24, 25, 26 from 11am until 5pm. Downtown White Salmon. One week from today! We have an event page on Facebook with our map and more information.
A White Salmon Art Council sponsored event.
Join 14 White Salmon artists as they open their studios and a Pop-Up Gallery all within walking distance of downtown White Salmon for a Fall Art Tour. The self-guided tour takes place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Oct 24, 25 & 26 from 11:00 am until 5:00 pm all three days.
A preview and month-long viewing of the artists work is at the White Salmon Pop-Up Window.

In other news……
Opening the First Friday in November, I’m producing work in my other kiln for…..
… a gallery show titled ‘Snow’ at Columbia Center for the Arts. It opens the First Friday in November with a reception from 6 until 8pm and runs through the end of the month. I’ve created a series of ‘Snow’ Bowls in my ‘Celestial Series’ tradition and will offer my iridescent art glass snowflakes.
Between those two events I’m delivering work to the NEW Holiday Pop-Up Shop in Hood River at 301 Oak, formerly Gallery 301! “Locally handmade gifts for everyone on your shopping list.” It is open Fridays and weekends November – December and open every day the week before Christmas from 10am until 6pm.
There’s more in November, but for now I am dashing madly toward my studio! Hope you’re all having a wonderful fall. You can see many photographs I’ve taken between my last post and this one on my Facebook Page, Steider Studios.
