The holidays are coming! I’m looking forward to presenting my artwork for the first time at the Bainbridge Island Studio Tour, a short ferry ride from downtown Seattle or Edmonds, WA. I’ve only tried to do my own retail from a small 10′ x 10′ booth once before when I had a lone tent at the 2015 Bainbridge In Bloom Garden Tour in one of the gardens as compensation for their choice of my art on the poster. I was a stranger to the island then but felt the welcome from garden lovers. I’m preparing now for this much larger art focused venue. This studio tour includes 55 juried artists in 8 larger venues around the island, a few of which are working studios. I will be in the Masonic Lodge along with 10 other artists. Here’s a link to the full brochure showing the participating artist’s samples and the venues. You can pick up a printed brochure when you arrive, but this pdf can help get you started.
I’ll be presenting many original paintings like Hot Tango above, as well as some more affordable framed and unframed prints and posters. You’ll have a chance to order custom sized prints from my portfolios to fit your decor or gift to someone else who loves flowers. Please come by and say hi while you enjoy the island’s beauty and search for holiday treasures!
Studio #5 Masonic Lodge. 1299 Grow Avenue NW, Bainbridge Island
Friday – Sunday December 6-8, 2019
10am to 5pm each day!
Be sure to also see two other artists from my Sole Proprietors artist group of about 20 years who will also be part of this tour and presenting their work at different venues from me. Paula Gill makes wonderful contemporary Tiny Tiles jewelry, as seen in the promo above, and ceramic hand carved tiles showing at the Grange Hall. Leslie Newman will be showing her vivid abstract limited edition prints at the Bethany Lutheran Church.
I am honored to have my painting Flamenco Whorl as a prominent part of the promotions for this tour as seen on the posters, brochures and web site. I even saw it on the video ad displays on the ferry! That painting won the 2nd place & cash award at the recent NWWS Waterworks show that ended last week, my first juror’s award for my Floralscapes series! You can see the original painting at my booth.
