Chester County Studio Tour

This weekend is the Chester County Studio Tour, with several artists opening their studios to the public all day today and tomorow. I am not one of them. Maybe next year. In the meantime, though, I went to the open studio nearest my own, which is Crow Hollow -- the studio of artist Sarah Yeoman. I met Sarah through Facebook, and may have met her at one of the watercolor society events, but I hadn't been to her studio before. I didn't even know it was just aorund the corner from me - only three and a half miles away!

Usually filled with students, Crow Hollow Studio is open to collectors today.
Sarah's studio is located on the grounds of a large estate, where her husband, Paul, is the horticulturist. Surrounded by sweeping vistas of pastural landscapes, the studio is a mecca for aspiring art students who come to learn to paint with watercolors and other mediums. Today, it was host to four other artists who set up fesival tents and displayed their art to the steady stream of visitors and art collectors that drove through the gates.  In addition to Sarah's gorgeous work, Kathy Ruck, Madeleine Kelly, and Carol T. Woolworth also displayed paintings and prints for sale, while Stan Smokler presented scultures.
Chester County Open Studios provides collectors with easy access to the area's top artists.
