Where did the time go?

Open Studio handbill_f:b002Taking a little breather from cleaning, rearranging, and preparing the studio for the 4th Annual Open Studio Event to update the blog this morning.

This post will be brief, as time is a premium at this time of the year. I am always glad about the longer days. It really helps in convincing myself that I can get the the work done…

Colin has been busy building temporary display walls for the art already delivered and art in transit. My shopping list is in place for the food I am planning to provide, baking will begin next week.

If you have not already put the event on your calendar, this is your reminder to do so. Publicity is well under way and the buzz is in the air – I just returned from Saskatoon where the quilt guild members are planning several car loads to visit the Open Studio.

Here is the official poster for download, complete with map. Open Studio Poster 2013 and a map for you to print out.

SandPoint Dir MapAnd those of you that are map challenged, here are the directions typed out.

Directions 1:
Coming from Moose Jaw you take the # 2 Hwy. turn off to P. A. / Chamberlain.
Travel approximately 30 km on the # 2 Hwy. and look for a seed farm to the right and the sign for “Prairie Harbour Cadet Camp”/Lakeside Terrace”/”Sand Point”.
An “Open Studio” sign will point in the direction of travel.
Turn right onto the gravel road and drive for 1.6 km. The road will lead down a long hill. At the bottom of the hill you turn left and immediately left again into the drive way. Another “Open Studio” sign will guide the way!

Directions 2 (from Regina and Saskatoon):
Travel north or south on the # 11 Hwy. toward Saskatoon. At Chamberlain turn onto the # 2 Hwy. toward Moose Jaw and drive for 21 km.
Look for a seed farm on your left and the sign for “Prairie Harbour Cadet Camp”/”Sand Point” on your right. A large “Open Studio” sign will point out the direction of travel.
Turn left onto the gravel road and drive for 1.6 km. The road will lead down a long hill. At the bottom of the hill turn left and immediately left again into the drive way. Another “Open Studio” sign will guide the way!

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

    Hi Anna. Thanks for forwarding this post. You may not have seen my comment on one of your earlier Blogs about the Open House. I just sent it yesterday or the day before to let you know that I am looking forward SO much to your Open Studio this year. Furthermore, I am bringing at least three friends, possibly four, all of whom are really keen to see what I have been talking about to them for the past year. Fortunately, one of them is willing to transport us all in her van.

    I have been immersed in family stuff for weeks on end (too tiresome to tell you about right now), and also put my back out a couple of weeks ago so have had massage therapy and acupuncture appointments taking up a lot of time. I am quite a lot better now, but only in the last few days have I finally been able to take time to return to my art room and also go through the accumulation of your Blog posts which have been piling up for almost a month. What great photos and accounts of your journeys the Blogs have included. I just viewed the photos taken in “Volunteer Park” in Seattle – truly lovely. And as for the tree photo with the ‘repair lines’ across the scar –it is superb – surely a contest winner, and surely inspiration for a fibre art work? I found the Blog exchanges over ethical issues really interesting and informative, and commend you for your stand and also for inviting views – some of which really surprised me. I haven’t had time to send Blog comments of my own, but I see similarity to ‘intellectual property’ debates and of course issues around plagerism of written works. Good for you.

    See you on June 22nd and perhaps even at Bazaart this Saturday if you plan to be there? Britt and I are going in the morning, then from 1 to 3 pm I expect to be at the RSWG booth for a couple of hours. Hugs, Judith
