Here at the Northrup King Building, Art-A-Whirl is a chance to gain free admission into the working studios of over 200 artists working in nearly every art medium. You could spend a whole day in our building and still not see everything. Free parking. Plus, studios and galleries will be open throughout Northeast. Come get to know this rich arts district.

Friday, May 14th – 5:00-10:00 p.m.
Saturday, May 15th – Noon-8:00 p.m.
Sunday, May 16th -Noon-5:00 p.m.

I have lots of work on the shelves as I've been stocking up to get ready for summer shows. Stop by to see what I've been up to! Also in my studio, #394, terra cotta sculpture and encaustic works by Claudia Poser, whimsical ocarinas by Lucy Grantz and mosaic work by Linda Mix Yates. Also, see a series of new collaborative mosaic works that Linda and I have been working on using my handmade tiles.

Most studios serve refreshments, and the Magic Bus will be outside the main entrance of the building for more serious food! Or, try some of Northeast's amazing eateries.

First Thursday Open Studios • May 6 • 5-9pm

What's Inside?

Come to the First Thursday Open Studios tomorrow night and find out! Right now my kiln is too hot to even peek, but I'll be opening it tomorrow just in time for First Thursday. It's filled with the first batch of flower pots, my new flower garden trays, and some other exciting new pieces and forms! Also, lots of mosaic tile pieces for new collaborative mosaic works with my studiomate, Linda Mix Yates. Come and see what we have in the works!

And, luckily First Thursday is just in time to do your Mother's Day Shopping. I have a huge inventory on the shelves as I stock up for art-a-whirl and summer shows. A bud vase, wall tile or new tray would make a perfect gift.
