Another year of Open Studios has come to a close, but there is still a chance to enjoy beautiful art by Open Studios artists!
North Coast Open Studios is an annual celebration of art and artists in Humboldt Count. This non-profit, artist-run event provides thousands of visitors a unique opportunity to meet the artists and catch a glimpse of their creative processes. The event is funded entirely by artist participation fees and community support. For 2013, the artists have offered an art-filled way to raise funds for this event: Support North Coast Open Studios and get a chance to win and one of three beautiful art pieces!
Glass artist George Bucquet, silk painter Tina Gleave and serigrapher John Wesa have all donated pieces for the benefit drawing. George Bucquet donated a hot cast glass bowl, approximate size is 11.5” diameter, 6.25” tall, valued at $2,000. Tina Gleave donated a” hand painted silk scarf, 14” x 60”, called “Glorious Hydrangea”; and an emerald green lamb leather mini tote with hand painted silk marble lining, just the right size for an iPhone. The two items are valued at $160. John Wesa donated “Redwoods State and National Park” a framed, limited edition serigraph, approximate framed size is 16” x 32”, valued at $265.
All three pieces will be raffled off on Wednesday, June 26th, and the proceeds will benefit North Coast Open Studios, and help defray the costs of this community event. Tickets are available until noon on Thursday, June 26th for a $5 donation to North Coast Open Studios (c/o Ink People Center for the Arts). Tickets can be purchased over the phone by credit card. Winner need not be present to win. Call (707) 442-8413 for your chance to take one of these beautiful pieces of art home with you!
