No Need To Knock – The Door is OPEN!
Crestone Artists Open Studio Tour
by Stephen Futral with Kim Roberts
Members of CrestoneArtists.com welcome you into their art spaces this weekend, October 9 & 10 for the Crestone Artists Open Studio Tour from Noon – 5 p.m. The pandemic canceled the 2020 tour, but this year the tour is back with new works inspired during enforced solitude. You can converse with the artists about technique, philosophy, creative process, and possibly see works in progress.
An Open Studio Tour has been a Crestone tradition since 2005. This 2021 tour is the 9th that CrestoneArtists has organized. The 12-page color catalog, available throughout the region, includes a map to plan your itinerary and a glimpse of the work and background of each artist as well as Covid protocols for each studio.
Fifteen artists are participating. Stephen Futral (aka Ish) brings his wealth of experiences to his encaustics, acrylics, watercolors, sumi ink, and jewelry.
Noah Baen’s paintings flow with movement, color, and a sense of delight. He will also show works of Robin Ross.
Don’t miss Alan Sutherland’s woodworks and paintings; quilts by Lynn Ertle and Pat Tullos, Jane Kwan’s, paintings in collage, cold wax, acrylics and mixed media and David Nelson’s whimsical cartoonish creations in colored pencil. Amy Jo Arndt’s mixed media art inspires freedom to be yourself.
