After a great lunch at The Pines, the group spent the afternoon touring several studios of artists who have chosen to make a home near Penland. First, we went to the Bringle Gallery to see Edwina's weavings and her twin sister, Cynthia's ceramics. Always fun to see a potter's personal "coffee cup collection." Next, we went on to the studios of Pablo Soto, glass artist and Cristina Cordova, ceramist. The group ended the day a the studio of ceramist Nick Joerling.
The group had a wonderful day, meeting artists, making new friends, being inspired and SHOPPING! The next Art Adventure will be on Sunday, January 11, and will be the ever-popular annual "Collections & Obsessions" tour of private collections in the area. Contact Rebecca Lynch-Maass at firstname.lastname@example.org or 828.253.3227, ext. 114 for more information on these exciting day trips.
Suzanne Jones enjoys the painting and drawing studio.
Gloria Schulman shows off some recent work in the letterpress studio to Richard Pigossi, Lauretta Warlick and Pat Ramsey.
Several of the Adventurers check out a dry stone masonry class working on a campus rock wall.
