It was a gorgeous fall day yesterday–great for an outdoor art festival! At right is a shot of my booth at the McLean Project for the Arts Artfest before opening yesterday–it looked a little different at the end of the day. I had a great time meeting new people and talking about art all day. The volunteers at MPA did a fantastic job of putting on the festival–they make it look easy, but it’s an incredible amount of work.
Next up on my calendar is the Great Falls Studios Sixth Annual Studio Tour, which is happening in two weeks on Saturday, Oct. 17 and Sunday, Oct. 18. Admission is free and the hours are 10-5 both days. There will be 44 artists on the tour this year–the majority will be in their homes or studios demonstrating how they work. I really enjoy this event because it allows visitors to see how I create my art quilts and to see them hanging in a real environment.
For more information, please visit the Great Falls Studios website at www.greatfallsstudios.com, where you can also register to win a $50 “Art Bucks” certificate good towards the purchase of art from any GFS artist during the weekend of the tour. You can also download a brochure and map of the area to help you navigate. Great Falls is an interesting village with a thriving art community that is a real hidden treasure–come see us!
