Astists Studios at Fearrington Village Open Studio Tour Weekend
Artists Studios at Fearrington Village Announces our First Annual Open Studio Tour 2015- Saturday, April 11 (10 a.m.–5 p.m.) and Sunday, April 12, Noon–5 p.m.).
To be a visual artist is to express ourselves in a way that can be viewed by others. These expressions may be profound or silly; inspire or unnerve; be innovative or revere the past. We may see our role as one who reflects on the mysteries of life; presents joy or beauty; creates in order to make a living; or simply because “we must”. It is this communication, this sharing of our ideas, thoughts and emotions that brings our art to life. Edgar Degas said, ‘Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.”
Artists Studios at Fearrington Village is a group of visual artists (friends and neighbors) who come from many backgrounds. Some are lifelong professional artists, while others are just discovering the joys of creative expression. In opening our studios, we will share our creative process, present our unique artistic perception and welcome visitors to our world of colors and shapes- paintings, drawings, collage, photography, altered books, sculpture, woodwork, jewelry and more. Works are available to view and purchase.
Some of our studios are not much more than an easel in the quiet corner while others are spacious places filled with energy. Whichever, we have created a space where we find inspiration.
We hope you will too.
Join us Saturday, April 11th 2015 (10 a.m.-5 p.m.) and Sunday, April 12th, 2015 (Noon -5 p.m.) for our First Annual Fearrington Open Studio Tour. It is free and open to the public. A preview reception & group exhibit will be held – Friday April 10, 2015 6p.m. – 8p.m. at Galloway Ridge Auditorium, Fearrington Village
