Getting ready for the Open Art Studio Tour!

My calendar has finally cleared up enough to allow me to start focusing on getting my personal studio ready for our 2nd Annual Open "Art Studio" Tour being held on Saturday, April 17 here in Summerville.  5 of us artists from Art Central Gallery and our potter are opening our personal studios to the public (pottery firing demonstrations will be held at 11am and 3pm!).  This is our annual fundraiser for "Meals on Wheels of Summerville"...we are selling tickets to the public ($15 in advance or $20 at the door).  This ticket gains you entrance to all the studios where you will meet the artists and see not only where we create, but what is currently on our drawing boards.  You'll be served light refreshments at each location and you're going to leave with a better appreciation for how we approach our work.  We encourage you to tell your friends about this event so that we can raise as much money as possible for Meals on Wheels.  Our favorite name for this event is "Art on Wheels!" ...your ticket is actually a map showing all the open studio locations which are all located in Summerville.  Call Art Central Gallery to buy your tickets with a credit card today (843-871-0297). 

Comments from last year's attendees:
"The artists were open to questions and showed their techniques. I thoroughly enjoyed the Silver Pail Pottery’s demonstration."

"I’ll be getting extra tickets for my friends. The fact that it went to Meals On Wheels of Summerville is wonderful!"

"My husband and I were seriously interested in the art and the accomplishments of the artists.   Loved the openness, the friendliness, the one-on-one...this made our tour very enjoyable."
