It’s official. I’m now the blog master for Philomath Open Studios! Last Monday we had our first group meeting for the season and the blog baton was passed to me. Kris Mitchell has done a wonderful job with pulling together so much information regarding the studios and visiting artists. This year, I needed to take a more active roll with the group since I lacked energy last season. I seem to vaguely recall a few odd things happening last year that disrupted the normal flow (attempting to run a website for another group, some installation art project in Halsey, death, you know…. those general sorts of things). I hope to bring in a different mix of ideas to increase interest of our event. Hopefully videos of artists in their studios, more photos, artwork, upcoming events and venues, and things that might help educate the general art buying community far and wide. I’ll try not to do much crossover on this blog, unless it’s really noteworthy, but I do encourage folks to check out Philomath Open Studios and maybe join the blog following. We also have a very active Facebook site too!
This year’s poster was designed by artist Kris Mitchell. She is one busy gal!
