The MHAAA Spring Art Tour - 2017
I recently picked up an interesting assignment to photograph a handful of the artists in their studios during the Spring Art Tour. Being a last minute deal I only had time to visit a few studios. The ones I did make it to I honestly enjoyed my time spent with the artists. It was so stimulating to connect with folks on a creative level, something I sometimes lack these days. I'm hoping to do more work with local artists in the near future.
From the MHAAA website, "Explore the treasures that await you under magnificent wide open springtime skies. View the vistas, prairies, and gardens that inspire this area's artists. They will welcome you into their home, gallery, and farm studios. Be inspired as you watch them create woodwork, wheel thrown pottery, beautiful jewelry, gourd art, fine art paintings and much more. Wander through South Central Wisconsin as you tour the rarely seen Open Art Studios of Mount Horeb and surrounding areas; as far north as Sauk Prairie/Prairie du Sac, as far west as Barneveld/Ridgeway, as far south as Blanchardville/New Glarus, and as far west as West Middleton/Verona."
