Monadnock area plans fall art tour

Thursday, October 4, 2012

The Fall Foliage Art Studio Tour will be held Saturday-Sunday, Oct. 6-7. Artists in the Monadnock region open their studios for a self-guided tour showcasing sculpture, painting, drawing, jewelry, fiber work, photography, glass work, pottery, woodwork and furniture.

New stops on the tour are the studios of pastel artist Linda Dessaint in Antrim and photographer/woodturner Lindsay Freese in Nelson. Three guest artists will exhibit their work alongside established members of the tour. Mary Wood Carnog will join Nelson painter Frankie Bracklie Tolman’s studio; still life painter Anne Murray will join potter Shana Brautigan in Rindge; and painter Dave Bulger will join watercolor artist Jeanne Thieme in Swanzey.

“We’re excited about these new faces on our tour,” said organizers Gill Truslow and Jeanne Thieme. “It’s important to keep things fresh for our collectors and visitors.”

This year’s tour of 24 artists in 20 studios offers fine art and fine craft, with the natural beauty of the Monadnock region offering a colorful backdrop. Nine towns in the area are represented.

A show of the participant artists’ works will begin with an opening reception at The Works Bakery and Cafe in Keene from 7-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4, and run through Nov. 1.

The tour is open 10-5 p.m. each day. For a downloadable map and brochure, visit www.fallfoliageartstudiotour.com. For information on obtaining a brochure, contact Nathan Kartheiser at 899-2849 or email nkartheiser@gmail.com.
