Still Here

Hello Everyone!

Even though class is over for the season, a few of us are still working away in the studio, as pictured below. I'll post more pictures from the end of class as soon as I figure out how to properly extract them from a CD given to me by Clai. To those of you who were in the class and have left town, we miss you! Come back! And to our friends who will be stopping through Santa Fe, drop me a line and stop by for a visit!

Cletus Drawing Demo

Happy Halloween! For the last day of the nine-month class, we had a special visit by Cletus. We hope he'll be back next year, but until that time we will cherish the memory of this extraordinary demonstration (quite possibly the fastest demo that Tony has ever done).

Setting up for the Open House

Vernissage Pictures

I managed to get these pictures before spilling wine on my camera. Thanks to everyone who made this event so much fun -- especially Maggie Elliot, who entertained us with live music.

Happy Birthday Anna

Event This Friday!

If you are in Santa Fe then stop on by!

And although we are calling it a vernissage, some of the work on display might not even get its proper coat of varnish before the open house. Questions? Call 815 871 3407.
