This October the Center for Emerging Visual Artists (CFEVA) will present the Philadelphia Open Studio Tours (POST)—a behind-the-scenes look at a day in the life of a visual artist. Great for all ages, POST makes connecting with local artists easy through an approachable and easy-to-navigate, free self-guided tour.
The program spotlights the vitality of each neighborhood’s visual arts scene and underscores the important contributions artists make to our city’s economy and civic life. Discover Philadelphia’s creative gems—artist studios, house galleries, maker spaces and community workshops—as hundreds of artists throw open their doors and bring the artistic process front and center in twenty Philadelphia neighborhoods. I have opened my studio as a part of POST for most of the past 20+ years since its inception.
My studio in West Philadelphia will be open on Sunday, October 16, 12-6 pm. You are welcome to see over 30 years of my artwork throughout the walls of my studio, as well as to watch me demo the encaustic process I use in my work. Along with works on paper, and larger encaustic panels, I’ll have miniature encaustic paintings available for sale.
