… a gallery show titled ‘Snow’ at Columbia Center for the Arts.  It opens the First Friday in November with a reception from 6 until 8pm and runs through the end of the month.  I’ve created a series of ‘Snow’ Bowls in my ‘Celestial Series’ tradition and will offer my iridescent art glass snowflakes.

Between those two events I’m delivering work to the NEW Holiday Pop-Up Shop in Hood River at 301 Oak, formerly Gallery 301!  “Locally handmade gifts for everyone on your shopping list.”  It is open Fridays and weekends November – December and open every day the week before Christmas from 10am until 6pm.

There’s more in November, but for now I am dashing madly toward my studio!  Hope you’re all having a wonderful fall.  You can see many photographs I’ve taken between my last post and this one on my Facebook Page, Steider Studios.  Mostly of wildlife along the Columbia, at Conboy & Ridgefield Wildlife Refuges, Lyle area and more….

Thanks so much to everyone who drove out to the Columbia River Gorge & to the top of Burdoin Mtn to see my studio & purchase my work!  You make it all worthwhile!!  I’m open by appointment and you can see my work in my ArtFire & Zibbet shops.  Now for some R & R in my garden!

Steider Studios Annual Studio Sale 2014

My annual studio sale is coming up on April 11, 12 & 13 in the hills above White Salmon Washington.  I’ll open my studio for three fun-filled days along with 40 other artists juried into the Gorge Artists Open Studios.  It’s the only time ALL my work is unpacked and displayed in one setting.  Enjoy a stroll through my garden on your way down to see my photography and art glass in my little cabin.

I just ordered new metal prints and all occasion greeting cards from my nature & landscape photographs.  My kiln has been reloaded with MORE art glass garden art.  Last night I finished cold-working new earrings and bracelets.  I have a feeling I’ll be finishing them between guests as there’s still so much preparation left to do!

If you’re in ~ or will be in ~ the Pacific Northwest, I’m happy to send you directions, just send me a message.

Until then, I’ll be scouring out my studio & unpacking all my work to show you!

Steider Studios is having a Studio Sale 2013

My annual studio sale is less than 3 weeks away.   Kilnformed art glass (including garden art!) and Nature Photography will be displayed throughout my little cabin in the woods.

The invitations went out yesterday.  To be sure all my glass looks its sparkly best I scour out my cabin, clear the winter cobwebs and even wash windows to let warm sunlight wash over each piece.  I’ve been clearing out my garden so you’ll have a lovely walk down to my cabin.  If only my little spring flowers will hurry up and bloom so you’ll see color on all my paths.

If you plan to join me on April 12, 13, 14 and need directions, send me an email – linda at steider studios dot com.  

I have a limited number of complimentary maps that will lead you to all the other artists on the Gorge Artists Open Studios Tour.  If you’d like one reserved please let me know right away.

Steider Studios: Installation Preview for Solo Show at The Nook

In addition to the flurry of preparations I’m still in my studio producing more!  Ladybugs are flying out the door from my solo show at ‘The Nook’, as well as buggettes and wall pocket vases.  I’ve replaced my work several times, because it goes home as its purchased.

This is the last week to see my show at The Nook as well as the Preview Show for all the artists participating in the Gorge Artists Open Studios Tour.  Columbia Center for the Arts is at 215 Cascade in Hood River.
