Outrageous October

A tower of events piled up for October! Here is the list:

PORTLAND OPEN STUDIOS…The Biggest and Most Interactive Event of the month:
Time: October 13, 14, and 20, 21, 10am-5pm
Location: Bite Studio, 2000 SE 7th Ave., Portland, Oregon 97214

I’m participating in Portland Open Studios 2012 and showing my process at Bite Studio (where I print my larger work) along with the amazing Tara Murino-Brault.

While you don’t need a tour guide to see me and my work, there are over 100 other artists around the Portland Metro area participating. This is a great opportunity to see the private spaces where artists work, view demonstrations, and learn more about the creative process – from the inside! To discover other artists’ studios in your neighborhood and experience the full range of artists at work, pick up a Tour Guide. The $15 Tour Guide is a ticket for two adults (children under 18 are free) and includes images of the artists’ work, a fold-out map, and a 2013 datebook. On a budget? We’ve also got a $5 Map Only ticket, also good for two adults, all four days.

Tour Guides can be purchased from me directly (we will have some at Bite Studio), online at www.portlandopenstudios.com, or are available at all New Seasons, and Muse, Collage, I’ve Been Framed, and Columbia Art. To find your closest retail location, see www.portlandopenstudios.com/tourguide/tour-guide-retailers/ If you would rather navigate the tour from your smart phone, then the Portland Open Studios iPhone app is your best ticket option. The app includes studio navigation via Google Map, the ability to add notes for future reference and search artist by name or media. Go to the app store to get yours for only $9.99.

Hope to see you on the tour!
