Autumn Art Studio Tour

Autumn Art Studio Tour

Showsno comments

Tour our country roads and byways that run throughout the Sierra Foothills to visit artists’ private studios. Take time to explore the beautiful areas that inspire these talented artists located just 45-minutes north of Sacramento–the hills, mountains, water, wilderness, horses, cattle, parks, vineyards, and eclectic small towns, each with their own charm. Placer County is home to a diverse population of artists and artisans, and this year 56 have generously agreed to open their private studios November 9-11, from 10am-5pm.

You may purchase tickets for the tour at my studio, OLAS (Old Library Art Studio), in downtown Auburn at 175 Almond St. Drop by and say hi, view my latest work and meet the other artists who share studio space. Learn about what inspires us, see demos, ask questions, share with your children the creative process. I encourage you to make the event a full get-away experience and stay the weekend to enjoy all the fine dining, wine tasting, and shopping the Foothills has to offer. But don’t get too distracted, this is your opportunity to bring home some great art!

“A woman in harmony with her spirit is like a river flowing. She goes where she will without pretense and arrives at her destination prepared to be herself and only herself.” (Maya Angelou)

This weekend I open my studio to share with you my steel, glass and metal sculptures of the theme “Vibrant Earth.” Drop in anytime between 10:00 and 5:00, Friday through Sunday (Nov. 11-13), to discuss the work, share hugs and celebrate the season. This is truly the best time for conversation and exchanging ideas, take the measure of a piece or consider commissioning a sculpture for that special spot in your home.

See you!

E.B. White wrote, “I arise in the morning torn between a desire to save the world and a desire to savor the world. That makes it hard to plan the day.” My sentiments exactly.

Since the museum show is up and running in Grants Pass, I’ve taken the week to focus on the savory side of life. My garden is so fragrant with ripening fruits and vegetables, I could walk through blindfolded and call out most of the varieties by sniffing the air around me. My studio is organized and clean again, beckoning me to fill the work tables with developing ideas of sculptures. My home is a love-fest of cooking and playing in the last days before the demanding patterns of school begin and eldest daughter leaves soon for college. Savor. Savor.

Saving may begin again on Monday morning. Savor your weekend. And, I hope you’ll take a moment to browse the newly-posted images of my sculptures.
