You’re invited to our open studio

Tim and I will be showing our art together as part of the North Kitsap peninsula Art in the Woods Studio Tour. It’s a self-guided tour of 21 artists’ studios, with over 60 participating local artists. 

Come on out to Fernwoods, that’s what we call our place in Indianola, Washington. It’s where my husband, Tim Celeski, and I live and work. It’s tucked up in the woods, and yes, it has a lot of ferns! 

Art in the Woods Studio Tour, Nov. 10-12

Fri., Sat., Sun., Nov. 11-13, 2023, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. (Tour website)

What you’ll see at Fernwoods

We set up in my husband’s bright and spacious wood shop. I’ll have my contemporary abstracts displayed and available for purchase, including new work from my 2023 Shapemaking project, new digital paintings, and mixed media drawings. I’ll have my iPad handy and am happy to demo how I use it to create my digital paintings.

Tim will have his contemporary wood sculpture and other surprises on display and available for purchase. Check out his “Maker Workstation“, a modular workbench he designed and wrote about in Popular Woodworking. Maybe see a 3D printing or CNC demo. Check out his Instagram @timcel@celeski.digital, and @woodworking.digital.

Below are some fun pieces from Tim’s B Flat series.

Finding Fernwoods

From the Seattle side, hop on a ferry. Indianola is about 30 minutes north of the Bainbridge Island Ferry Terminal and 12 minutes south of the Kingston Terminal. Check the ferry schedule online, because it’s subject to change these days. Our address is 21072 Fern St NE, Indianola.

There will be lots of yellow “Art in the Woods” signs directing you to the studios. You can pick up a map/brochure along the way, view the map online, or download the Map PDF. We’re studio No. 6. So rest assured, if you make it to Indianola, you’ll see lots of signs pointing the way.  

There are two other studios very nearby. Meredith Chernik’s Fern Street Pottery (Studio 5 just down the street from us), and Sydni Sterling Studio (Studio 4).

Also coming up quick…
