Hwy. 62 Open Studio Art Tours--Visit Studio 31, Rancho Mesa Artists

The biggest art event of the year starts next weekend in the Morongo Basin--the Hwy. 62 Open Studio Art Tours. This year 10 artists in our neighborhood have banded together as the Rancho Mesa Artists. These artists are showing at 5 different studios within a few blocks of each other. Come on up Hwy. 247 and check it out!

Like last year, Bill is showing with artists Kathi Klopfenstein (sculptural basketry), Paul Klopfenstein (gourd art), and Deane Locke (painting). Their studio is #31 and they are open both weekends--Oct. 25-26 and Nov. 1-2 from 9-5 pm. Along with the art, there's live music every day plus plenty of free food and drinks. And, on Friday, Oct. 24 from 5-7 pm, there's a sneak preview.

Bill will be selling a wide selection of framed and unframed (matted) photographs in various sizes, as well as greeting cards. Above: Ryan Ranch, 2013.

Our books will also be available, including the newest, just-released Desert Dweller...which has a cropped version of the Ryan Ranch photo on the cover, as well as many more photos by Bill inside. (Also, wildlife photographer Julianne Koza's image of our desert white raven). LOTS of poetry, too--our longest book yet!
