Artists in Action - Open Studio Event
The past months have been very busy ones of painting, creating art quilts, opening a shop on Etsy, organizing with a friend a core group of 9 emerging artists from San Diego, California's North County into a group we have named Artists in Action and hosting our invitational 1st Annual Arts and Fine Handcrafts Emporium on November 7, 2009. The event experienced success that was beyond our wildest expectations. Over 100 guests visited our 6 hour open studios and sales were phenomenal. The level of enthusiasm among artist participants, as well as among guests, was over the top and already we are laying the ground work for another event in the Spring of 2010.
Only a few pictures were taken by one of the guests who graciously shared them with me and those are posted above. With any luck we will have an official photographer for the Spring open studios. 2009 has been an exciting year and 2010 looks as if it is going to hold even more joyous moments of creative work, networking among other artists, and establishing and "marketing" the art works of our newly formed group of talented artists and artisans.
