Spring Studio Tour Season Begins

This Mother's Day weekend, May 9th and 10th from 10am to 4:00pm, grab your Mom and let her pick out her own "Handmade in Hamilton" gift from one of the 20 artists participating in the 10th Annual Southwest Hamilton Artists' Studio Tour in the Locke/Aberdeen/Queen District of Hamilton. I will be at my studio with some great new work. I will be hosting stained glass designer Siobhan Lynch (www.sio2creations.com). All of the artists will be giving you a sneak peek at their work at our Preview Show at the Bold Gallery from April 20 to May 3rd with the opening party on April 24th from 7 - 10pm. Information on the tour and the preview show and maps can be found on the tour website at www.southwesthamiltonstudiotour.com. Feel free to contact me as well at info@taralynnefranco.com if you would like a map mailed to you.
Prior to this tour I will be at the Spring Sale of the Potters' Guild of Hamilton and Region on May 1 -3. See www.hamiltonpotters.ca for details. At the end of the month I will be a guest at Richard Fisher's studio for the Beyond the Valley Studio Tour. For details see www.beyondthevalley.ca.
