Visiting Studios

We are presently working on our "beyond the gallery door" show that will take place in May 2010.
The title of this show is "Art in Place" and will feature sculptors from the Northwest. (Did I mention "The best sculptors?). I love meeting artists.
For this show, I am gathering images of the studios and the artists and will try to put together a personal glimpse of how each each artist works to carry out their ideas. Lucky me.

My week has been busy with my first visit to Andries Fourie from Willamette University. Hands and wheels

Next was a trip to McMinnville where I met up with Stu Jacobson.

I took a short break and drove to Sheridan to visit Marilyn Higginson. She's someone who can paint beautiful landscapes, throw pots and also build amazing sculptures. Such a talented lady.

Upon leaving her studio we encountered some friends.

Jill Torberson was our next stop.

While in Portland I just had to visit my "little friend". Gramps.
Did I mention that I REALLY want a fuzzy little dog?

Today was the best.
Visiting the studio of Robert Hess. He is one of Oregon's treasures. Lucky us.
