October 2019

Hello Autumn.  We're not ready, but here you are.  Time for a drive through the Driftless?  You bet!  Welcome visitors all for the Fall Art Tour!


Stop on by for art and tea, conversation or contemplation, a walk in the garden, woods, wetlands.  Bring your boots, stories, friends...

​Below, a few glimpses of what's been happening in and around the studio.

John has set up a table in a corner of his studio, where he brings in found treasures from the woods and wetlands to photograph.  Sometimes they become part of a piece, and other times they launch his imagination into stunning perspectives on the world we inhabit.

Pamela has been cutting up unfinished paintings and drawings.  Then, like Humpty Dumpty, she puts them together again; unlike HD, they are altogether different, strangers in a strange land.

Wielding a jigsaw, she is also creating shapes with wood, echoing the paper cut-outs, and then some.

Meanwhile, outside the studio...the bounty and the beauty!
