Fort Point Art Walk this weekend! May 05, 2013 12:22
Come visit the exciting studios of Fort Point Artists this coming weekend!
Be sure to come early to pick up a free artist-created flower, while supplies last! Fort Point artists have created imaginative flowers in all media, from prints to drawings and ceramics. Visitors can pick up flowers at the information booth at A and Binford Streets while they last! My "flowers" are the spoons above!
Not will you get to see some great art in the spaces we create our art, but there will be some fun demos to check out, including yours truly doing a demo on slipcasting and inlay techniques at Midway Studios #211 at 2pm on Saturday!
So come check it out!
