Coming right up, 2010 Art Trail Open Studio Weekends. Bring yourself and your visiting guests to my studio during the Art Trail open studio weekends, October 9-10 and 16-17 (open 11 AM to 5 PM each day). My home studio is located at 109 Park Place, Ithaca, NY. If you are lost, call my cell (607-592-4900) for directions.
All who come my studio on the arttrail weekends can put their names in a hat for a prize drawing, first prize being a 11x17 print of your choice and second prize being a five pack of my assorted notecards.
     In October, State of the Art Gallery will host the Greater Ithaca Art Trail Preview Exhibition, a show of paintings, prints, sculpture, fiber art, ceramics, jewelry, furniture, collage, and glass
made by participating art trail artists.

December 4-5, 2010, vist my booth at the Syracuse Plowshares craftshow.

I continue demonstration carving at the Ithaca Farmers Market on Saturdays and Sundays. Sunday market continues until end of October. Starting in November, Saturday market begins at 10 AM. Note, on arttrail weekends (see above) I won't be there but a friend will run my booth.
