Flung Wide Were the Doors
This weekend was the annual "Astoria Open Studio Tour." It's a weekend when artists all over town spruce up their studios and fling open the doors so people can walk through and see what they create. Everyone hopes to sell a little art as well, but the main point is to show people your space and your work. Which is kinda funny, because that's what I do six days a week, all year long. But yes, I cleaned the studio/gallery space (although if you look closely, there is still a lot of dust hanging around...) and with the help of a couple of great friends, took everything down off the walls and out of the windows and re-hung it all. I think the gallery space looks a lot better. And there is some really cool stuff in there! I love events like this because I like to talk to people. About my art, what sort of things they enjoy looking at, and just life...
Some of the new additions to the gallery: Carol Edwards' whimsical creations are infused with color and personality.
Bryan Lewis' white oak tree catches the light and hurls it around the room like crazy.
Bryce Harris's work is just wonderful.
And my newest piece... well, I really like it a lot! I can almost feel the hot dust blowing in my face and feel the sweat creep down the small of my back and hear unseen animals rustling in the long grass on the Serengeti.
Stop by some time and see what's new - and rearranged so you may see it for the first time!
