tudio artists of the Silver City Art Association plan to share with a weekend of open studios and evening entertainment. The “Spring into Art” kick-off party will be held from 5-8 p.m. Friday, May 4, at 209 Broadway in downtown Silver City. La Esperanza Winery will provide the wine bar, and partygoers will enjoy creative food by the Duck Stop and desserts by Honeybee Good Bakery. The evening will offer a chance to view an example of art by each of the 24 artists whose studios will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on May 5 and 6. Continuously changing, projected art images will provide additional visual stimulation and more examples of the SCAA Studio Artists’ range of vision and skill. A special event during the evening will be the $49.99 Art Auction. Each artist will have an artwork displayed that will offered at auction. Each piece will have a basket beneath it. Those interested in bidding can purchase tickets for a dollar and place their tickets in the basket under the art they would like to have. As the evening progresses, one ticket will be drawn from those in the basket and the ticket holder must purchase the item for $49.99. There will be an exhibit displaying one piece from each artist representative of the work to be seen in each

studio. Action and industry will be happening during the Tour of the Art Studios. The artists will be working on projects and can explain how and why they use the methods and materials they do. In some studios, visitors can participate in trying the materials and in other studios can watch professional equipment such as pottery wheels, kilns, lathes and welding tools being used to create art that is often functional and always enjoyable. Silver City artists that use watercolor, acrylic, oils, or pastels to paint express themselves in a va-

riety of styles. Their studios may have walls of hanging art, canvases leaning stacked against the walls, or even specialized storage systems. Most artists will be happy to have you look through their work and enjoy some refreshment while visiting. The “Spring into Art” theme of the RED DOT Studio Tour offers an enjoyable weekend looking at art, viewing the blossoming landscape surrounding the studios, and the scenic drives between studios. This event is free but donations are gratefully accepted at the door.
