Annual Open Studio Event

Tea and CookiesThe excitement is building! The studio is in the process of getting a transformation. The oven is pre-heating for a mega bake session in anticipation of more visitors than ever… In only 8 days we welcome the public to our place at Buffalo Pound Lake once again.

For additional details check out my recent post.

The most recent number of artists participating has climbed to 18. Everyone is an active member of the Moose Jaw Art Guild, myself included. Many are also Saskatchewan Craft Council members. Over the past month on the road I have received short emails and many images of new work that will be featured by participants. There will be textile art, photography, painting, mixed media work, sculpture, caricature sketching and fused glass on display and for sale. Ongoing demonstrations of various art disciplines will be part of the activities offered each day. Bring your friends and family. There is something for everyone! Into photography? Bring your camera and check out the wild life at the lake. The birds are actively nesting and working hard on keeping the air insect free!

Mark your calendars for June 26th (noon till 9 pm) and 27th (10 am – 6 pm) and then head our way. Just in case you find the map a bit small on the poster (found on the previous blog post, link above), here are detailed directions how to find us:

An “Open Studio” sign will point the way!

Turn right onto the gravel road and travel for 1.6 km. The road will go 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! Feel free to park along the road if the driveway is congested!

    I would so much want to share in that cup of tea with you! (The cookies look scrumpdelicous too!)Your enthusiasm and vigour is such inspiration! Congratulations to both of you for all you’ve accomplished this spring. We’re still on the road, but, boy-oh-boy, there sure are a lot of exciting times ahead! The very best to all of you in this very fruitful summer of 2015.

    Hi Anna & Colin, your afternoon tea looks marvellous and I am sure your water was boiled. I couldn’t figure out why my coffee tasted awful, not till after you left did it dawn on me, in my excitement to see you I didn’t let the water boil. I get a lot of laughs over that story. We plan on coming to Drumheller to hang out so save Friday the 3rd.
    You are good friends.
    Cheers, Shirley

    Oh Anna, that photo makes me long to be having a cup of tea with you right now. I also wish so much I could get to the Open Studio but other volunteer commitments call. I hope that it is a great success.

    • Thanks on the feedback of the image. It is one for the upcoming Festival of Words images I am submitting interpreting one of the passages in Andrew Pyper’s book “The Guardians”. Wish you could come to the Open Studio! It is promising to be a huge event this year! Looking forward to it! Have some tea and put up your feet, Elinor! You have worked hard over the past several months and some quiet time will rejuvenate!
