Hood River Holiday Pop-Up

The Hood River Holiday Pop-Up opens Saturday, November 1st.  Open hours are 10am until 6 pm every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in November and December; and every day December 12 – 25.  A fabulous place to do your holiday shopping, located at 301 Oak Street in Hood River.  I’m honored to have my work juried in with many artist friends including Kathy Watne enamels and several artists from Gorge Artists Open Studios.

You’ll find my ‘Buggettes’ (also featured on the poster, yay!), art glass star ornaments, miniature plates, treasure/trinket boxes, wall pocket vases and some sweet 8 x 10 photographs printed on metal along with some of my favorite images printed on all occasion greeting cards.

Snow Show at Columbia Arts

Don’t forget the ‘Snow’ Show opens First Friday at Columbia Arts in Hood River with some fabulous artwork depicting snow.  I may post a teaser of my work on my Steider Studios Facebook page, if time allows.

Extravaganza 2014

I’ll take my art glass and photography on the road again and meet you at the Soroptimist’s 10th Annual Artisan Shopping Extravaganza!  Held at the Hood River Inn one day only, Saturday November 22nd from 10 am until 4 pm.  Mark your calendars, this is a good show!

December 5 I’ll be in The Dalles with a small table of work at the MCMC Holiday Market in the Medical Office building.   December 6th you’ll find me in Trout Lake for the Holiday Market at the Trout Lake School, sponsored by the National Honor Society.   More info on both shows as we get closer to the events.

Until then, I think I’ll catch up around the studio as quickly as I can, then take a long and leisurely Sunday Drive up to Glenwood and visit my favorite National Wildlife Refuge, Conboy for inspiration and relaxation!

… 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.

Annual Studio Sale

March 31, 2014

Steider Studios Annual Studio Sale 2014

It’s almost here!  My annual studio sale.  April 11, 12 & 13 in the hills above White Salmon Washington.  I’ll open my studio for three fun-filled days in conjunction with Gorge Artists Open Studios.  It’s the only time ALL my work is unpacked and displayed in one setting.  Enjoy a stroll through my garden on your way down to see my photography and art glass.

I just ordered new metal prints and all occasion greeting cards from my photographs.  My kiln has been reloaded with MORE garden art.  Last night I finished cold-working new earrings and bracelets.  I have a feeling I’ll be finishing them between guests as there’s still so much preparation left to do!

You can find maps at Mt Adams Chamber of Commerce or download a pdf from our website, http://gorgeartists.org  onto your iPad or similar device.

If you’re in ~ or will be in ~ the Pacific Northwest, I’m happy to send you directions, just send me a message.

Until then, I’ll be scouring out my studio & unpacking all my work to show you!

Steider Studios:  Sunset yellow.2.28.14

I am way behind, so instead of panicking I’ll just relive the last sunset of February.  I was cooped up all last week  with my computer, CreativeLive and Photoshop trying to learn new tricks.  At the end of the last session on Friday I had to… no, needed to hike down my mountain for fresh air, green forest and hopefully a sunset.  So thrilled I caught the last sunset of February just before March stormed in.

Steider Studios:  Sunset Sky.2.28.14

On Sunday, in spite of the March storm I went to the Yard Garden & Patio show with my friend Kathy.  We were so desperate for spring that we braved icy snowy conditions on Interstate 84.  We cruised at a steady 35 to 40 mph & arrived in Portland in time for a fabulous Lebanese lunch and the show.  Our trip home was not as pleasant with a 10-15 mph cruising speed crawling on bumpy washboard ice caused by semi trucks chained up.  I confess that was better than the alternative – skating off the road like some of the abandoned cars we saw.

Steider Studios:  Sunset 2.28.14

Now I’m back in the throes of getting ready for my annual studio sale. and working with Gorge Artists Open Studios for next month’s self-guided tour of 40 artist’s studios.  I always wonder if people will venture way up here to my spot on top of Burdoin Mountain to see (and purchase!) my glass & photography.  If you’re so inclined, you can download a pdf of our map from our website onto your iPad (I think it would work on other reading devices too)!

Steider Studios:  Sunset.2.28.14

In preparation this year we have THREE venues showing a preview of our work!

Tomorrow night, Thursday March 6th is the opening reception for The Dalles Art Center Preview Show.  From 5 until 7pm you will meet many of our artists – I hope you can make the opening.

We’ll also have a Preview Show in the lobby of Columbia Art Gallery with an opening First Friday, March 7th from 6 until 8 pm.  Most of us will be there to talk about our work & we’d love to see you there.

Trash-2-Art Gallery Show at Columbia Arts

I also have work in the gallery portion of Columbia Art Gallery for the Trash to Art Show during the month of March.  I’ll be hanging out between the lobby area and the gallery for the reception of both shows on First Friday.

If that weren’t enough, the White Salmon Windows project is featuring participating studio tour artists downtown for the month of March.  So, 40 artists have work spread throughout the gorge hoping to tempt you to come to our studios in April!

I’ll post more information about my studio sale closer to the event & hopefully will have something interesting to post between now & then!!  As always, I’m ever so grateful that you took a moment to visit with me!!
