Celebrate Creativity!

Studio tour2

The Great Falls Studio Tour is an annual event which showcases not only the work of our local artists but allows you to meet them where they do their work. Travel back roads and main streets to individual and group studios. This is a unique opportunity to meet more than 40 GFS member artists – quilters, painters, potters, sculptors, jewelers, photographers and more. At each stop you can expect demonstrations, exhibits and hands-on activities. You’ll also be able to chat with some of the regions’ top talents.

This year’s tour takes place Friday, October 16, 12 – 5, Saturday, October 17, 10 – 5, and on Sunday, October 18, 12 – 5.

I’ll be at the Studio to explain the process of batik making and demonstrate techniques I have used in my recent work. There are also many of my quilt designs on display in the Studio.


So how does the Studio Tour work?

The Great Falls Library at 930 Georgetown Pike is a good place to start. There will be artists there to help you map your route and samplings of work from participating artists. Take the tour at your own pace, picking and choosing what you most want to see.
