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.  *www.pawildsartisans.com 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.

Holiday Openhouse THIS Sunday the 20th

November 20th, Sunday 1pm to 6:30pm
600 Market Street, Johnsonburg, Pa  15845
in the Historic Johnsonburg Community Center
 I opened the gallery up in 2006.  This photo is from Christmas Openhouse 2006 with Linda Pontzer as the feature, the jewelry I was turning out were asymmetrical large stone/glass beaded designs, beaded figure sculptures w/a fiber base and bead embroidered felt brooches and I was also 'focused' on food vignette style photography. 

The gallery has gone through quite a few changes in the last 5 years, for instance, initially every two months a new featured artist filled the entire wall space, I was not yet a PA Wilds Trail stop, my studio was on the 3rd floor and I had Stitch and Bitch gatherings on Thursday mornings at 10.

The gallery now has permanent artists with a wall section for features, I am a PA Wilds Trail stop and juried artist, the work studio is in my home garden and I am centric on metalsmithing with cold connections, torch work and fusing.

The gallery played host to 20 featured artists and 4 themed shows during the last 5 years covering many mediums including oils, watercolors, mosaics, photography, beadart, ACEOs and wood carvings.
New Projects:
I have plans on putting together an artisan jewelry show in the gallery with several fabulous bead artists, metalsmiths and mixed media artists.
 I want to see more classes in gallery and at my home studio to share the wonderful happiness we jewelry artisans all have found in creating from beginner to advanced levels given by different artisans including myself.
