Art Business, Artists Magazine To read about the Kirkland Art Studio Tour, see "Work in Progress" in the November 2007 issue of The Artist’s Magazine. C. Sharp, Kirkland Art Studio Tour (KAST) founder, broke her ankle weeks before the studio tour. Ouch! Good thing it wasn’t her painting arm. Merrily Dicks, Mark Simpson and Jane Fishel put stamps on brochures. KAST distributed 10,000 this year. Phyllis Ray is ready and waiting in her well-appointed garage. Friends and patrons admire Phyllis Ray’s latest works. Kristin Simpson and Carol Belval make sure Carol’s ceramic art is firmly planted in the garden. Kathy Collins sets up her watercolors in Phyllis Ray’s gazebo. Kristin Simpson’s gargoyles are a new addition to the art tour this year. Some people like to see the studios as much as the art. Joanne Shellan’s home studio is situated right on beautiful Lake Washington. Author Artists Network Staff Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
