The annual juried Portland Open Studios is just around the corner. I will be participating again this year. The event takes place October 13,14, 20,21. Hours are 10-5 both days. You have the opportunity to see 100 artists at work in their studios. It's a great time to learn about why and how we work, and buy art directly from the makers. For $15 you get 2 tickets, a map, and a fully-illustrated engagement calendar with photos of every artists' work. For $5. you can purchase just the map. The guides and maps are available at New Seasons, and online at Portlandopenstudios.com. I hope to see you soon!
