Experience the Art…..Hangout with the Artist…..Explore their Studio…..Get the Insider Stories. Join Jerry and Deb for an afternoon getting up close and personal with world renown local glass artists and sculptors who just happen to live and create in ‘our backyard’. We’ll start at the top o’ the holler , with a cup of perfectly brewed latte or tea and browse the contemporary collection of sculpture collection on display all around us.....learning the inside story of local glass, stone sculpture and ironwork artists, their inspiration and methods. Together, we'll noodle the role of art in contemporary design and swap secrets for 'upping the wow factor' of space, without a big budget or a fancy decorator. Then it's off to a private tour of one of our favorite local glass/sculpture artists to meet and spend quality time 'in studio' where you can appreciate how they render their stunning, evocative creations. You'll even have the chance to acquire artist's coveted 'slight imperfects' at very special prices. The entire experience will wind back up at our home where we'll sit in the garden, dangling feet in the gurgling hot-tub and sip a celebratory glass of sparkling!
