Fall Art Studio Tour in Yellow Springs

This weekend, amongst a lot of hustle and bustle, I went to the Yellow Springs Studio Art Tour in Yellow Springs, OH with my house guests from Connecticut. They have managed to come about the same time each year for the last several years and this has become a favorite side trip.

The day was glorious. Fall colors were everywhere and Yellow Springs is a wonderful little town....even if we were not able to go to the Winds Restaurant to get some squash lasagna for Martha. It was so packed that they were not even taking reservations. We stopped there at 2:00 p.m. and were told that the wait was 50 minutes. We went to another favorite stop, Bentino's Pizza where I had yet another wonderful pizza.

This year, instead of just having one artist at each stop, each "host" artist was allowed to ask two other guest artists. the Miami Pottery hosted Lori Gravely and a wonderful jewelry maker. Here's Lori with some of her quilts.

I was also able to stop by and see fellow MVAQN quilter, Pam Geisel at her studio where she hosted two other people as well, only I stupidly didn't take pictures of Pam's work. You can see Pam's things here on her website. She also sells on Artfire and Etsy.

Pam and Lori both had successful days. I can't imagine the pressure they are both under as they prepare for another show at Glen Helen.

Here's Lori's sales area, and the smaller shot is a close up of some of her work.

Cool! I don't know if we have anything similar in our area; I'll have to check it out. Glad you had fun with your guests.
