This will be the first time I’ve participated in the Bainbridge Island Studio Tour, or any multi-day art fair. I think I’m ready. I’m a fan of the tour, and have enjoyed being a patron ever since my husband started showing his work there some years ago. All the venues are warm and welcoming with a festive atmosphere (and treats). Thanks to encouragement from friends I applied and was juried in! I will be at the Robert Spangler Studio on the south end of the island (8495 NE Oddfellows Road).
I’m showing my limited edition abstract prints — the bold, graphic Shapemaking series, and expressive digital paintings. I’d love for you to see them in-person.
Bainbridge Island Studio Winter Tour – Nov. 30, Dec. 1 & 2 – 10 am to 5 pm
STUDIO 1 – Robert Spangler Studio – 8495 NE Oddfellows Road, Bainbridge Island
There are eight venues and 59 artists on the tour! Here’s the brochure from the Bainbridge Island Studio Tour website (PDF).
My studio mates
Also exhibiting in the Spangler Studio will be my husband, Tim Celeski (wood furniture and sculpture), Susan Arens (encaustic paintings), Linda Ricci (porcelain pottery), and Brian Goodman (Photography).
Robert Spangler Studio
Studio 1 hosts, Bob Spangler and Birgit Josenhans are delightful people and talented woodworkers. They design and build contemporary furniture that is drool worthy. I got a sneak peek at some of pieces that will be available at the show, including a new chair design. If you’re a fan of modern furniture design you must see this new piece. I know this is where a photo should be, but I’ll leave that for Bob to unveil on his website, or better yet come see if for yourself in his spacious wood shop on the south end of the island. In the mean time Bob’s Instagram is below.
Take a mini vacation on Bainbridge Island
Bainbridge Island is a fun, easy excursion for Seattle residents, drive on the ferry at Colman dock in Seattle and spend a day on the island. It’s another world.
A ferry ride is so much more pleasant that sitting is I-5 gridlock. On the island see some big trees and peruse fine arts and crafts. Discover a new artist and maybe find the perfect gift for a dear one (or yourself). The BIST venues have treats, but you always could grab a cinnamon roll and coffee at Blackbird Bakery, or try the new Coquette Bake Shop kiosk everyone is raving about, both are in Winslow. Sounds delicious all around!
