Wow! What a weekend. I’m tired but proud and pleased with all the great art lovers who came by to shop, learn, and visit. It was my most successful event thus far — a huge THANK YOU everyone who visited.
Some neighborhood artists, myself included, got together to cross-promote our open studios. We created a crawl the folks could walk or bike stopping at studios and local businesses. The Curtis Park Art Crawl was a big success.
I spent much of the summer converting my garage into a workshop so the event was really a good deadline to get it all in order. Here is an overview of the process…
