I am gearing up for this year's artisans studio tour. 33 artists in 17 studios in the Charlottesville area will open their doors to show and sell their work this weekend. Many of the participants will offer demonstrations, so there will be opportunity to learn about wood turning, forging, and leaf printing... I will be exhibiting at The Barn Swallow together with potters Mary Ann Burk, and Janice Arone, and textile artist Enid Adams. The tour is an exciting event where visitors are treated to incredible art as well as edible goodies from local gourmet stores and caterers.
