Steider Studios:  Hummingbird Resting on Crocosmia

Gorge Artists has a call to artists for the 2014 open studios tour in the Columbia River Gorge.  Our deadline is Oct 1, 2013.  Starting earlier this year, the organization hopes to avoid the frantic trying to get everything done that always seem to happen when no one has time to take care of business.  Applications are on our website, gorgeartists.org.

Steider Studios:  Sunbeams through Morning Trees

Although I don’t get as much traffic as artists who are in town during the studio tour, I can show you a gorge-ous scenic view when you arrive.  I’ll have plenty of hand-made art glass available as well as a larger selection of my photography than I have in the past.   OK.  Time to get my application in!  All artists who live in the Columbia River Gorge are welcome to apply.  Join me!!!

You can see many of my photographs published as all occasion greeting cards in my Zibbet shop.

For my studio sale I pack up all my personal possessions and turn my cabin into a Glass Gallery.  Usually it’s only for a Sunday afternoon.  As you read in my last post, this year I’m participating in back to back weekend studio tours, so my living area will look like this for a week!  I love seeing all my work surrounding me instead of boxed up waiting for the next art show, but my dog is used to having her toys thrown for her evening entertainment.  Not this week!  

My studio has all my experiments, and seconds displayed along with tools and mica for glass artists that I sell.  This means I can’t work for a week.  Guess it’s a good time for a staycation!  You’ll find me in the garden….

Oh, and if you didn’t get to the Gorge Artists Open Studios Tour, you can still come up and see my work during the White Salmon Artists Studios Open House on Saturday May 21 from 10 am to 5 pm.

My annual studio sale is a bit different this year.  I’m excited to be taking part in the Gorge Artists Open Studios tour this Saturday and Sunday, May 14 & 15 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Normally I only open my studio for one Sunday afternoon in the winter, but this year I’ve stretched it into two full days and moved it to spring.

This time of year you’ll have a lovely walk through my garden to my cabin-turned-gallery-filled with shimmery sparkly glass.  There’s not a lot blooming yet, but my daffodils are still vibrantly nodding their heads for you.

My friends, Angela and Jean will be here helping me again.   You can see what all goes into the transformation from cabin and studio to gallery setting in this older post.

The upstairs living area looks wonderful with all my newest work including home decor, jewelry, vases and so much more!    In my studio I’ll have tools for glass artists along with my ‘firsts’ and ‘seconds’.  In my shipping/storage room I’ll have all my series that I’ve currently discontinued.   There are some great bargains to be had!

Hope you can join us!  Send me a note if you need directions.   Linda at Steider Studios dot com.

Oh, and if you can’t make it this weekend, guess what?  The White Salmon Arts Council is hosting a studio tour of local artists next Saturday.  Yes, I said I’d be on their tour too!!

Everyone that lives with me knows there will be no throwing dog toys in the house for the next 10 days!
