2012 Labor Day Studio TourWednesday, August 29, 2012 by Steve Hill
Filed under: Exhibits and Events
The Annual Lopez Island Labor Day Weekend Studio Tour is Saturday and Sunday September 1st & 2nd

I have already re-hung the entire gallery and house with nearly 100 original works in Pastel, Oil, Watercolor and Figurative drawings in pastel. Half of these are works never displayed, as they were done over the past year. Some were done at plein air juried events back east, out west, Italy and lots from the islands. We are having a once-per-year “preview sale” until Friday, Aug. 31st at the gallery. Stop-by (or email) to see what's being offered with sale prices.

During the Studio Tour, I will be showing one painting (not for sale) that won 2nd Honorable mention from renowned oil painter, Everett Raymond Kinstler, in Richmond, VA and pictured in the background of this photo taken by fellow artist, William Bensen, at the awards ceremony June 23, at Brazier Gallery. Frankly, the biggest honor of my art career is simply having met such a legendary American artist. He regaled everyone at the awards ceremony with “painting” stories of famous people he has done over his 60 year career, including Katherine Hepburn, John Wayne and Bill Clinton, among thousands of portraits. Visit his web site: www.everettraymondkinstler.com to see this man's incredible work.

In the meantime, do stop-by the gallery (“Studio #2” on the map and guide) to take a peek at my latest work. 783 Port Stanley Rd., Lopez Island, WA. Open until 5 daily.

Wow! What a fine artist you are. I remember you from when you were teaching at WSU, and I was a student in a couple classes. My career went toward education, but I am retired now and have reconnected with my artist side. Hope you are well, Lindy
