Wow, we are into the second half of August… and for us the pace is stepping up. This Saturday we open our doors for Sparx Art Hop. Our studio is one of the stops on the blue line… We are open 10a-4p. This is a first opportunity to visit our new studio and hang out. Joining us are several visiting artists.
The web site is updated with Silk Play Days on select Saturdays in September and October. The cost of the class includes supplies for 1 silk scarf. The process does take 6-7 hours, and you will go home with a finished scarf ready to wear. For more information click here.
We are pleased to announce that our studio will be hosting Mary Urbas and her class “The Business of Art” in September. This is a 6 week class that is ideal for the artist that wants to learn how to sell their work, network, develop a pricing strategy, and a marketing plan. To learn more click here.
We are on the road to York Pennsylvania for Yorkfest August 24-25, and then to Hale Farm and Village in Bath Ohio for Made in Ohio Festival the following week (August 30-September 1). Both festivals are enjoyment, and vibrant with the offerings of talented artists.
Also in the studio, Barb has begun a series of silk paintings echoing the work of Gustov Klimt, a Viennese painter of the secessionist movement which was part of the Art Noveau era.
Pet portraits on silk are still very popular. I have been busy painting mostly dogs, but a few cats and a bird. Learn more by clicking on the photo at the left or chick here (pet portraits).
