WIFAS Open Studio

The Whidbey Island Arts Council hosts an annual Whidbey Open Studio Tour. This year the tour will be on October 6 and 7, 2012 from 10am to 5pm each day.  We invite you to come make a weekend of art on Whidbey Island!

More than 50 artists will open their studios for a self-guided tour. Whidbey Island Fine Art Studio is participating in this Open Studio Tour.

Our studio will be open both days and we invite you to come out and meet Cary Jurriaans and Gordon Edberg, view their art work, and learn about the workshops and classes WIFAS offers.

The Whidbey Open Studio Tour is free. You can pick up a brochure on the island and then use the interactive map in combination with the yellow tour signs to help guide your way to each studio.

We look forward to meeting you!

Weekend with the Masters

September 10,2012

Just back from Weekend with the Masters, a fabulous 5 days put on by American Artist.
The first day I had a portrait workshop with Jeremy Lipking, absolutely amazing. Wonderful artist, hope he will come to Whidbey one day.
Demo in progress by Jeremy Lipking
Jeremy loves the long haired badger brushes, he has incredible control with them. His colors are soft.

The next day was Daniel Gerhartz. Also amazing, actually they were all incredible painters!See his demo:

 The next one was Carolyn Andersen, boy would I like to have her teach at WIFAS.

 The following are demos by Sherrie McGraw and Rose Frantzen. The painted on stage at the same time and with very different styes and techniques, it was hilarious....

 Rob is having a serious conversation or contemplating his whiskey....
 an beautiful Juliette
 Julie and Alexey, what a character!! and fabulous artist
 Last but not least Quang Ho, masterful and fun..

I feel enriched and lucky to have been part of all this,
Happy Painting, Cary
