Jordan Steele of local television station, KEPR, stopped at 3 of the artist's studios today to give the public a view of the concept of Open Studio Tour. Actually he had come out a week ago and taped all 3 segments, but it's fun to follow along as though you are traveling with him. My studio at 17 N Auburn in downtown Kennewick was the first stop. I relayed to the public, a bit of history and information about this 6th tour we've put on. The camera lady was able to capture my bird-nest oil painting in process. Check it out!!
Dennis Brunson was the second stop. Jordan was thrilled to see the clay pot come to life as Dennis worked it on the potter's wheel. Jordan admitted he had only seen it done in the movie, "Ghost". Dennis plans to demo this aspect of his process during the tour.
Last stop was Linda Andrew's glass studio. Jordan was enomored with the fact that she creates such beautiful and dynamic glass vessels with tiny strings of glass called "stringers". He also highlighted that Linda is an international artist. How fortunate the Tri-city area is to have such a high caliber artist in it's midst.
Hope you enjoy the video and if you are in our neck of the woods, please come on out to visit the 14 artists in 11 different studios scattered around the Tri-City area. The tour runs this weekend, November 14 and 15 (Saturday and Sunday) from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. See you soon!!
