ARTEAST event coming up

First time since 2002 that I haven't participated--just couldn't spare the time to make scarves when I had the collaboration show to deal with...but the upside is that this year I get to see everyone's work instead of being stuck in my own venue.  
Mark your calendars!! 

Saturday, October 15, 9 AM - 5 PM
Sunday, October 16, 11 AM - 5 PM 

ARTEAST was initiated in 1998 by a group of artists as a way to pool their resources and bring attention to the extraordinary artists in the Metro East area of St. Louis. Now in its 14th year, ARTEAST continues as an event designed to showcase the artists who live and work in Madison County, Illinois.

Artists from this region participate by opening their studios to the public or participating in exhibits. Over 120 artists working in a wide range of disciplines including collage, painting, ceramics, photography, printmaking, sculpture, glass and digital media show their work and demonstrate their craft.

Organized as a self-guided tour for patrons, ARTEAST provides an opportunity to get a glimpse into the workspace, inspiration and techniques of our resident artists, while exploring the neighborhoods, historic city centers and beautiful countryside.

The event is free and open to the public.

The poster (with map on the back) is available at Jacoby Arts Center and most venues.  You can also print out maps from the website at .

ARTEAST Small Works Exhibit opens at the Jacoby Arts Center Friday, October 7, 5-8 pm with a reception.  The show will be up through November 6.  Most participating ARTEAST artists will have a piece in this group show to provide a preview of the ARTEAST tour event mid-October.
