Open Studios, Studio at the Mill

I took a new little studio this fall to do a drawing project away from my home studio.  It was very economical, in an historic structure, plenty of parking, 4 minutes from home.  It has been a pleasant and quiet place to work so far…and even though I share the space, I rarely coincide with my studio mate.  This Thursday though, concurrent with the opening of the new Compass Gallery on the main floor, the 12 artists who have studios will open their studios for a peek.  Refreshments will be on hand, work will be for sale, it’ll be festive.  Downstairs there will be more food and music…I mean really everybody, can you resist?  Thursday November 13th, 5-7.

The historic structure is the Willamette Heritage Center, still Mission Mill to many of us…front

 

My window is the tiny one just under the eaves on the second floor…
