Thank you to all of you who came out for the 40th anniversary Open Studios annual tour, Oct 7-9, 2023.

Studio doors were flung wide open offering a look into the workspaces and access to fascinating art accompanied by lots of laughter, and one-on-one chats with the artists.   

Have a case of buyer’s remorse for not picking up that piece you really liked?  Feel free to contact the artist directly and most will welcome you back to their studio at your convenience. See their work and contact information here.
