Art in the Woods – our first open studio at Fernwoods & you’re invited

What the heck is Fernwoods? That’s what we call our place in Indianola, Washington 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! 

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. 

Art in the Woods Studio Tour

Fri., Sat., Sun., Nov. 8-10, 2019, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. (Tour website)

What you’ll see at Fernwoods Studios (besides ferns)

I’m showing my limited edition abstracts: expressive digital paintings and the modern Shapemaking series

Tim will have his wood sculpture, selected furniture, and other 3-d surprises available and on display. We’re going to set up in his awesome woodworking shop. Check out his instagram @timcel,, and (yes, he has IG three accounts!).

Don’t miss our talented neighbors

There are two other studios very nearby. Meredith Chernik’s Fern Street Pottery (just down the street from us), and Sterling Studio, featuring painter Sydni Sterling and amazing plant fiber artist Melinda West. (All are artists whose beautiful work we’ve collected. 🙂

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. (Peak ferry season is over, thankfully, so long ferry waits shouldn’t be an issue!)

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, or download a map PDF. We’re studio No. 6. Rest assured, if you make it to Indianola, you’ll see lots of signs pointing the way. 

Also this fall

We’ll both be at the Indianola Holiday Art Fair…

Wherever you are I hope you get a chance to get out and see some local artists’ work this season, you probably can yourself a treasure for yourself or a loved one. Cheers!
