Studio Renovation & Open Studio Tour

I feel it's almost Christmas because I'm super excited about a big studio renovation that's nearing completion! With the professional help of our friend and contractor Scott Simms from Coastal Craftsman Builders, we're finally turning the garage into a beautiful studio/gallery. It will be so nice to finally have a space where the mice don't use the edges of my stacks of colored paper to decorate their nest with! We're looking forward to showing off the new studio during the Annual Artisan Guild Holiday Open Studio Tour on Friday, November 25 & Saturday, November 26 (Thanksgiving weekend). I hope you'll put these dates on your calendar to come and check out the gorgeous result and celebrate the start of the Holiday Season with us! My friend and guest artist W.T. Wilkins, will be showing his stunning wood turnings in my studio as well.

Thanks for following my artwork and art events and we look forward to seeing everyone soon!

Happy fall,

Carole.
