Take time to feed your spir­it and check out the new exhib­it, OCAG PREVIEW STUDIO TOUR, at the gallery.  Sev­en of our own gallery mem­bers are par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Stu­dio Tour.
2019 marks the 25th annu­al Orange Coun­ty Artists Guild’s Open Stu­dio Tour. Held the first two week­ends in Novem­ber, 78 artists locat­ed through­out Orange Coun­ty are par­tic­i­pat­ing.

For the ninth year, Pringle Tee­tor and Lin­da Carmel will be show­ing togeth­er at Carmel’s stu­dio, 101 Hunt­ing­ton Dri­ve, Chapel Hill, #62 on the tour. Pringle’s blown glass and Linda’s tex­tured paint­ings com­ple­ment each oth­er per­fect­ly.

Ali Givens returns to the tour for her third year. Ali cre­ates fab­ric col­lages of land­scapes, cityscapes and still lifes sewn from hand-paint­ed cot­ton, col­or­ful batiks and oth­er nat­ur­al fibers. Her stu­dio is #14 on the tour locat­ed at 3611 Mijos Lane, Chapel Hill.

Eduar­do Lapetina’s stu­dio, locat­ed at 318 North Estes Dri­ve, Chapel Hill, is #63 on the tour map. This is his eleventh year on the tour. Lapeti­na will show new abstract paint­ings with vibrant col­ors in var­i­ous sizes — includ­ing very large pieces.

Michael Sale­mi, a wood­turn­er, is show­ing joint­ly with Miri­am Sagasti at her stu­dio (#25). Michael’s work includes both tra­di­tion­al forms: bowls, plates and plat­ters, and unusu­al pieces such as ike­banas.

Alice Levin­son will be exhibit­ing con­tem­po­rary wall-hung tex­tile pieces. Each, rich in col­or and tex­ture, is com­posed of hand-dyed fab­ric, dense­ly sewn. Her stu­dio is #18 on the map, 3604 Pas­ture Road, Hills­bor­ough.

Jason Smith cre­ates one of a kind abstract met­al sculp­tures in steel and cop­per using reclaimed mate­r­i­al. Jason’s stu­dio is #2 on the map, 1709 NC HWY 86 North, Hills­bor­ough.

The tour is an oppor­tu­ni­ty for art lovers to meet artists, watch them demon­strate how they cre­ate, and pur­chase work direct­ly from the artist. Stu­dio Tour brochures and maps are avail­able at the Hills­bor­ough Gallery of Arts and on the Guild web­site: http://www.ocagnc.org   Artists on this year’s tour will have work on dis­play in the pre­view show at the Hills­bor­ough Gallery of Arts from Octo­ber 21 — Novem­ber 10. It’s a won­der­ful oppor­tu­ni­ty for a first look at the work and help plan your tour route.
