Every other month or so a bus load of people, literally, arrive at the studios at 270 Sherman Ave N and tour the studios of the painters, sculptors, photographers, and tradespeople who occupy her. This was the first month I’ve been able to participate and I was tres nervous.
Since I do portraiture, I don’t have ‘pieces’ to sell–but fortunately I have been adding to my canvas collection and was able to display a few things as well as offer people free group photos! I had a few people in who said it was a treat (and relief) to do something fun in one of the studios–instead of having to think. I’ll take that as a compliment! …kinda.
The Art Bus people had a ton of fun dressing up in the costumes I brought–but unfortunately I can’t show any of those images at this time–I need to get their approval first!
I decided to coincide the Art Bus tour with an Open-House for my new space–so after the Art Bus people left I had a few friends and family drop by for wine & cheese and silly portraits, of course!
So I hope you enjoy the photos from the Open House as much as we enjoyed making them and I’ll be offering this fun photo experience at every Art Bus night–so I’ll announce it the next time it happens and you should try to drop by!
