Cant believe we are mid way into September!!! We have been on the road the last 4 weekends, and we have a break in the action before our next run of shows. You can always find our schedule by clicking on the schedule page which i try to keep updated regularly.
Coming up is the Avenue of the Arts event this Friday along the Superior Arts District. We are delighted to open our doors for open studio. The hours are 6-10 pm. The passenger elevator doors open on 4, and just turn right – you walk right into our space.
Next out door festivals include Tremont, Franklin Apple Festival and Lakeside Lighthouse festivals. Details are on the schedule page.
The web site is updated with Silk Play Days on select Saturdays in September and October. Some of the classes are full. 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.
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).
