Studios and Workspaces on the Brain

Along with my working studio finally underway here is the up and coming studio and retail space of a talented friend, Stacie Johnson-Leske owner of Your Fired Pottery.  A group of juried PA Wilds artists and artisans, myself included, are having a PA Wilds Pop-Up shop in her space March 11th & 12th.  It is a fabulously varied group with each one a different medium.  Among them you will find watercolor, photography, pottery, artisan jewelry, fiber, soap, paper and graphite.  
Held during the Ridgway Chainsaw Rendezvous, which draws people internationally, it will prove to be an amazing event all the way around.  
Clearfield, Elk, McKean and Potter are the 4 counties out of the 12.5 region setting up shop in this beautiful studio at the heart of Elk County.  * for more information on the membership.

list of participants
  Her talented and knowledgeable husband was there the day I stopped in to get a better idea of space for the pop-up.  Still loads of work to do for them in the future with lighting, cabinet making and installing the kilns but, the walnut floor will be installed along with the storefront windows.  The true opening of her pottery studio is scheduled a few months down the road but, is a great opportunity for artists as well as the public to mingle.gather.hobnob. after such a crazy Winter.

The front of Your Fired Pottery to be filled with artists and artisans very soon including Stacie who will be setting up her throwing wheel front and center somewhere along this bank of windows on Main Street.

Throwback Thursday

 I am pretty sure this was my 6th grade birthday party in February 1978.  Loved that record player, Twister and Earth Shoes.  A few good friends, a butterfly birthday cake from Gram and my little brother eventually joined us as you can see :) :)  The Monkees, K-tel compilations and The Partridge Family were right at the top of what was played I am sure.
A few months before hot rollers arrived under the Christmas tree, lol. 

Earlier this afternoon Jackie and I went for lunch in Ridgway, Pa.,  While there visited some antique stores galleries and shoppes- fun-times!  South Street Botanicals, Two Scoops, Clarion River Trading Company and ECCOTA were all decked out for the Holidays. Ridgway has a happening Main Street!

attended Chainsaw Rendezvous 2013 yesterday

My friend Christine and I walked around Ridgway Pennsylvania yesterday, Ridgway is also the county seat of our county of Elk.  Ridgway is a wonderful historic town full of life in their history and also the energies of the people very active in preserving and continuing it's viability for generations.
One such event, The Chainsaw Rendezvous, has been very beneficial in helping the town's economy in February.  With it's wide variety of international talent the Rendezvous draws in tourists from all over the world.
