While the gallery is a participating merchant in the Art and Wine Festival that weekend, the show also is open to the public at large. All visitors are welcome to watch the demonstrations, shop and talk with the artists.
I will have new work in the sales gallery and also will be demonstrating wheel-throwing and decorating techniques on all three days. Here is more info on the other three artists:
Paul Schmidt is a former computer systems engineer who now enjoys “coaxing” wood and plant materials into his woodcarvings and works of art. He’ll be showcasing new pieces and also demonstrating the making of his pine-needle baskets.
Franz Affentranger will be showcasing his newest collection of handmade bistro tables. Affentranger, a dairy farmer in the central valley, is a part-time Cambria resident and has become known for the award-winning scarecrows he’s made for Cambria’s annual Scarecrow Festival.
Sharon Casey, a maker of contemporary art quilts, will be bringing a new line of quilted housewares and fashion accessories exclusive to this event. We are so honored to have her join us this year. Several of her pieces are on national exhibition but she will be bringing brand new pieces for display.
