My studio will be open to the public during the Orange County Artists Guild Studio Tour the first two weekends in November. If you live in the area, please stop by. I'd love to meet you and show you my work. This is a sales event (what a great time to purchase Christmas gifts!) but it's also a chance to see artists in their most personal spaces – their studios.
Painters, sculptors, mixed media artists, ceramicists, weavers, glass makers, and … even a few fiber artists!
It’s a HUGE tour. There are more than 100 artists participating at 82 locations throughout Orange County – in Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Hillsborough.
Here’s how it works:
First, download the brochure here (at the Orange County Artists Guild website, ocagnc.org) and figure out which studios you want to visit. All the studios are numbered, and there's a handy map. I'm stop 68.
For a preview of what you can see on the tour, you can visit The Arts Center in Carrboro. It's located at 300 E. Main Street in Carrboro (near concert venue Cat's Cradle).
The Hillsborough Gallery of Arts will also have a Preview Show Oct. 29 - Nov. 14. It's located at 121 N. Churton Street in Hillsborough.
Next, grab a friend or two (and a mask, which is required inside all the studios this year), and start your drive. At each location, signs mark a spot. Parking and accessibility varies from location to location, because these are private homes, in most cases. At my house, parking will be on the street, and then there’s a short hike up a steep driveway to the studio entrance that faces the street.
I'll be selling my work, including small and large pieces, as well as notecards. And when it’s not too busy, I'll be doing demonstrations of how I make my painted and threadsketched work.
Please come! I’d love to meet you!
Boy do I wish I lived closer! Would love to meet you and see your studio!ReplyDelete
