    3rd Annual Little Spokane River Artist Studio Tour
    by Hulda Bridgeman
    Picture this: A beautiful autumn day in the Little Spokane River valley, with a leisurely visit to gardens, art and artists to enhance the enjoyment. Then mark your calendar for Saturday, September 25th for the third annual Little Spokane River Artist Studio Tour.

    And in recognition of our common interest in preserving the special qualities of the Little Spokane valley, the Artist Studio Tour is making a donation to the Trails Fund of the Friends of the Little Spokane River Valley. Some of the Tourís host studios are connected by the FLSRV trail system, and all are located within a 2.5- mile area - an easy distance to drive, walk, bike or ride-share.

    Admission is free and studios will be open 10am - 5pm.

    Full information on each artist and a tour map can be found at http://www.LittleSpokaneStudios.com.

    The Tour was inaugurated by Spokane artists and valley residents Gina Freuen and Hulda Bridgeman, who were joined by Jill Smith and Victoria Brace in opening their studios for one day to show and sell their work and that of nine guest artists. The enthusiastic public response led to the addition of Patti Oseboldís studio, and the inclusion of 19 additional guest artists. A number of the artists show nationally and internationally, and some are new to this region.

    In these five unique studio settings, some of them surrounded by personal gardens, you will see where and how artists work. Media offered for sale will include ceramics, painting, pastels, drawing, limited edition silk garments and scarves, glass, photography, jewelry, Japanese sculpted paper dolls, papier mache sculpture, handmade books, prints, designer handbags, and found object and mixed media sculpture.

    Come join us on September 25 to celebrate beautiful objects and life in our beautiful valley!
