Holiday Open Studio Weekend at Tip Top

This has been an exciting couple of weeks at the Tip Top as we worked to get ready for this weekend. Brochures should arrive today and with lots of measuring and leveling and taping, the downstairs wall has been striped a lighter tint of orange....

Yesterday, we artists met and hung our work and added the finishing touch -- the sign at the top....

Later this week we'll finish hanging the first floor gallery just in time for our Open Studios this weekend. Please come visit Upstairs at the Tip Top Friday from 5 to 8, and Saturday and Sunday from 2 to 5, at 85 North Main Street, White River Junction. I will be working in my studio and serving refreshments.

In addition to supporting Upper Valley artists by purchasing their work, there will be free activities all weekend long. Friday, at 7:30 there will be a gallery talk by photographers Sara Wight and James Patterson at the PHOTOSTOP Gallery, followed by an opening reception for “Winter’s Depths” from 6 to 9. At 6, Georgina Forbes will be demonstrating her unique technique of pouring liquid color washes onto canvases positioned on the floor. On Saturday, at 2 Kathy Parsonnet will offer an interactive session on color and space and at 4 Larissa King will give a wire sculpture demonstration. On Sunday, at 2 Rebecca Gottesman will show how she moves from vision to canvas.

Come and join the festivities!
