Philomath Open Studio Tour is this weekend and the next! Yesterday, Harold Wood and I set up our show at Spindrift Winery in Philomath. Our studios are too far from town to engage the public so we are depending on the kindness of Matt and Tabitha at the winery. Tonight the artists tour all the locations together and eat at each. I still have some tasks to finish up to get it all ready but we are pretty good to go. Harold’s bright, bold, digital work contrasts with my dark grey nuanced palette but the work looks surprisingly okay together. Hope we have lots of visitors and meet new folks. We will have some maps to get you round the whole tour. The weather looks like it won’t be too bad either. Here is some new work that will be available at the show. And the wonderful postcard/poster that Harold designed. It just makes me smile—Michelangelo’s God image reaching down to choose sushi from a plate holding work by many of the participating artists. Laura Berman’s felted box makes a particularly interesting bite of sushi.
