Did you ever wonder where or how artists get their ideas for their creations? Whether the artist is a painter, a sculptor, a fashion designer, or a fine craft artisan, those ideas can take minutes, days, even years to define; and may take even longer to bring to a desired result. Don’t miss this up-close-and-personal opportunity to see and hear the imaginings of four of our finest fine craft artisans—Jeanne Kitson, Jan Towsley, Lynne Feldman (pictured) and Andrea Geer. During this walking tour, we will visit their studios/boutiques in Village Gate and the Anderson Arts Building.
