Open Studio tour is the perfect excuse drop by and see what your favorite artists are cooking up. Take a peek in to their creative process, where they find inspiration, and perhaps find a new treasure for your own home. Plan on touring Tucson two weekends this year, May 14, 15 and May 21, 22. The Zocalo magazine has a complete listing of all participating artists, and corresponding location.
My home studio will be open Saturday May 14th and Sunday May 15th, from 11 am to 5 pm. Joining me this tour is Michelle Spanyard, one of my favorite metalsmith jewelers. My studio is listed as #31 in the Zocalo. Located in Dove Mountain: 5486 West Durham Hills Steet, Marana, 85658
This is the eleventh year that the Spring Tucson Artists' Open Studios has been a grassroots, artist-initiated event, produced by artists for artists and the public.
Abstraction; extended necks and wilting hands, Expression; floating dots and cerulean blue lips and Color; plush alizarin backdrops and emerald green stockings, spill onto each bleached canvas, leaving an indelible stain. Whether palette knife or brush, pure pigment or distilled, each painting brings an abstract thought to life.
Color is my passion, my movement, my expression. My love for color, abstraction of the human form, and need for expression are the forces that drive me to expose the innermost layer. Tucson 12 photographer Martha Cantrell captured this essence recently for a D-town Tucson segement.
