A weekend celebrating art ~ all types, everywhere!

This weekend Tucson Pima Arts Council (TPAC) sponsored a city-wide "Tucson Open Studio Tour" where dozens of studios (representing more than a hundred artists) opened to the public. Every part of town was included and the diversity of the artists and their work was astonishing.

The point of the tour was to enable visitors to see the artists' spaces and talk to the artists about their work. This makes the work of the artist much more personal ~ and enlightening!

Here are three photos from the Glass Illusions Studio ~ an interesting husband/wife team of artists. Mark Johnson does the metal work and Pattie is the glass artist. Their work ranges from delicate glass jewelry to mammoth yard art.

To see more of their work go to their website: http://www.glassillusionsstudio.com/
