We've been in Decorah for a little over a year now and let me tell you, it has been a busy...and awesome...one! We've meet tons of fantastic people, many of them we are thrilled to call our friends already, and have had the opportunity to immerse ourselves in this inspiring and creative community!
This year will be our first -- of hopefully many -- of participating in the Northeast Iowa Artists' Studio Tour. The tour is an AMAZING weekend of 55 artists at 42 different locations, most within 30 or less of Decorah! How crazy cool is that??!! And the tour will be rocking for 3 whole days -- Friday, Saturday, and Sunday the first weekend of October, from 10am to 5pm each day!
Most artists will be set up in their own home studios, meaning that not only do you get to buy work directly from the artists -- which is the best way to buy work for both you and the artist -- but you'll get to see the behind the scenes of everyone's creative processes!!
We invite you our home at 409 Winneshiek Avenue in Decorah. Although our studio is not yet built -- plans were approved by the Board of Adjustments just this month though -- and we've been working out of the community clay studio, our work will fill our home for you to shop from. Come see our work, explore our crazy art collection -- our friend Erik says we should open our home up as an art museum -- and check out our Decorah digs. We also promise to have lots of yummy snacks and refreshing drinks 'cause that is how we roll!!
PS: Your support this year will mean more than you know as every dollar we make from our work will be going towards helping us build our studio. We look forward to showing you the plans when you stop by during the tour!
