Since a number of artists don't have studio space suitable for visitors, a number of host locations are also utilized as group sites. The driveway to my studio space is always muddy and difficult to navigate during the art tour (I got stuck in the driveway twice last year during the art tour).
So I'll be displaying at this great old stone schoolhouse called Grubtown School which is just a couple hundred feet away from my driveway, but without all the nasty spring mud to traverse. The school house has been remarkably restored and is used as a seasonal rental south and east of the historic town of Lanesboro.
I've been working diligently during the cold winter to create a huge inventory of pottery for the tour which is my first sale of the year. So I should have some new items to unveil along with the most extensive inventory I'll have at any shows for the year. And as an added bonus, I'll have some wonderful snacks and beverages created by my friends at the Highland Store & Cafe which is just a couple miles north of the schoolhouse.
If the weather cooperates, I may even get to do some throwing demonstrations on the patio outside. I've got my fingers crossed.
