Small Town - BIG ART!!! - Arts Commission Open Studio Tour 2009
Sunday, June 7th, 2009
The Arts Commission held its annual Open Studio Tour on Sunday, with more than 100 people buying tickets at $15/pre-sale and $20 day of the event. The works of more than thirty artists were on display at nineteen studios throughout Sierra Madre. Several studios in the canyon were reached by visitors taking trams that were on a rotating loop down to St. Rita's. Creative Arts Group was the opening spot on the tour, where attendees picked up tickets/maps and received information about the various studios and artists. Creative Arts Group also had artists giving demonstrations in various media, a children's project to make cars, and an auction of birdhouses. Artists were given plain unadorned birdhouses and asked to decorate them however they saw fit. It was interesting to see the different directions taken by the artists, with probably the most unusual of the paths chosen by a pair of artists working together who chopped/blended the wood into papier mache, from which they made birds and placed them in a potted plant (see pictures below). This is a work in progress, I'll be adding more artist information after I find my program, and possibly some video and links, as well. At the bottom, please find links to the website for some of the artists...
