Co-CREATOR

HOSTS-Highland Open Studio Tour Sundays- with Curt Harville- Monthly Art Event started in May 2013.

The first Sunday of every month we open our art studios to the public. My studio is the anchor house, and is always open. HOSTS is a self guided art tour that changes monthly. Highland artists open their studios and we find places for out of the area artist to set up. We average 7 locations and 4 artists or musicians at each spot monthly.
