For the summer Open Studio, we are inviting you to the first event of the Sunwise Solarium School. I’m sharing my studio space (and porch!) and materials, so you can experience the satisfaction of creativly responding in drawing or word, to something you harvest from the garden – a tomato, sweetgrass, a flower.

Ask me about the upcoming Atlas of the Year online class! Atlas of the Year, Spring, East Journal , South Journal and West Journal are printed and ready to view. This is the first of four journals that are installments from the full Atlas of the Year, which you can see in its entirety.

You know it will be a beautiful time to stroll the trails, Monarch and bird watch from the renovated solarium or porch sit, so come on out. I look forward to seeing you soon.

Please join us for the season’s first glimpse of new collages, bead jewelry and garden highlights. Open Studio events in the Winter, Spring, and Summer are our most deluxe Saturday afternoon delights. Please contact us to tell us you are coming.

After your studio visit, we invite you to tour the gardens of Sunwise Farm & Sanctuary and to stroll the trails that offer direct connections to the lush natural surroundings. We also want to share information about how to become a ‘waystation’ for Monarch Butterflies on their annual migration from Mexico to the U.S. These beautiful pollinators are essential to the success of everyone’s future food crops, yet these elegant creatures are also endangered. Your involvement can diminish that threat.

About our Studio: One visitor to our Studio, designed and built by us, said, “The first thing I noticed was how tranquil a space Kathleen has created as her ‘shrine’ for artistic contemplation. One can truly listen to the heart in such a wide-open studio, and I appreciate her willingness to share it for a few hours. For me, the sense of place at Sunwise Farm is inextricably linked to Kathleen’s mixed media collage work.”

Make Sunwise Farm & Sanctuary part of your Autumn Annual Open Studios ARTTOUR circuit, as you visit other fine studios in the neighborhood.

Each of the Open Studios is a great opportunity to explore the “Three C’s” of the art experience: Creativity, Communication, and Contemplation.

Sunwise means clockwise, and by implication, movement in a positive direction. Since building our home to optimize Solar gain in the winter and dedicating the land to share with others, human, animal & bird alike, that was the name that seemed right. The farm part is dedicated to gardens, bees and hay. The sanctuary part is dedicated to serving the critters who pass through – deer, turkey, coyote, fox, geese, hawks, bobcat (1 time), the darling starlings, and hundreds of birds. And also to share with those who need time out from hectic city life. Over the years we have been creating trails and destinations like Honeysuckle Haven, and quiet places in the forests. Our lifestyle integrates sustainable agricultural and architectural practices with the creative and healing arts.
