It has been three years since the last Spring Into Art Open Studio. The previous celebration took place before the studio annex was finished. Since then most events under the banner of Sunwise Celebrations have been virtual out of necessity, except for the two Annual Autumn Open Studios that I had in person. The one in 2020 was by appointment and masked. Last November’s Open Studio was happily attended by the visitors and for myself that I began to dream about¬† the next in person show, now scheduled for April 23, 1-5 pm. Let’s celebrate Earth Day!

Much new artwork from last autumn, including new books from Alexander’s Library. In case you missed it, in February I loaded the videos onto Artwork Archive and wrote about it on this post.
