Saturday & Sunday ~ May 23 & 24 ~ Memorial Weekend

This year is the first time I am joining in the annual Studio Tour at our Asheville Home. It will be a fun way to display my art and get to know the Asheville Art Community. I will have a varitey of work on display with many for sale. Mostly acrylic and mix media work. There are a lot of fabulous artists joining in the fun please click on the link to see a complete site of the details.

Kenilworth’s Art Studio Tour returns on Memorial Weekend

 

Across May 23 and 24, the eclectic and beautiful neighborhood of Kenilworth will again welcome folks in search of inspiration and wondrous finds to the studios of artists and craftspeople who live along the streets and cul-de-sacs of this historic residential area near central Asheville.

In this off-square, hill-and-gully neighborhood, where most roads head up or down, the fresh works of 24 artists showing in 15 locations mirror the same kind of curvilinear eccentricity, intrigue and sheer fun.

 

Traveling from studio to studio, you will be able to admire highly original works of art, including paintings, sketches, ceramics, wood craft, hand shaped tiles, whimsical sculptures, casual wear, quirky dolls and artful jewelry, among other treasures.

 

And the stories are as compelling as the pieces—just ask Suzanne and Argenis Spaziani who met in the Andes and now develop stunning silver jewelry; Mike Wurman who sketched his way up the Appalachian Trail; or Ursula Gullow, imaginative painter and assembler of fabulous landscapes.

 

It will be an adventure in visual delight, running from 10:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, with an “Art Café” on the lawn of Kenilworth Presbyterian Church, where you can drop by for a van Gogh lunch box from Green Sage Cafe between the studio stops.

 

A Kenilworth Art Studio Tour brochure containing a listing of each artist and a map of studio locations will be available throughout May at the Chamber of Commerce and in stores and inns across Asheville.  You can also access and/or download this year’s tour map and helpful information at kenilworthartists.org.

I recently took an online ornament class and learned how to make these watercolor pieces. http://christytomlinson.typepad.com/christytomlinson/workshops.html
Book paper cut into the shape you desire, loose watercolor then doodled with flowers, sewn together and filled then embelished – done! (I put a layer of gel medium over the top of the painting to give the book paper more strength – old paper is very delicate and tends to tear when filled)
