The SOMA Artists Studio Tour

details from the South Orange Maplewood Studio Tour website:

The Pierro Gallery of South Orange and 1978 Maplewood Arts Center are proud to present the seventh annual Artists Studio Tour on Sunday June 6, 2010, from 11a-5p.
The towns of South Orange and Maplewood New Jersey are a hub for many artists, arts venues, restaurants, shops and boutiques. The annual studio tour attracts hundreds of visitors to the studios and galleries of our local talent.
This unique exhibit gives you rare access to the artists and their working environments, where you can view and purchase work directly from the artist. Commercial venues and alternative exhibition spaces provide extended exposure for the artists and businesses in the two towns.
The South Orange & Maplewood Artists Studio Tour features over 50 artists. Meet them, see their work, and celebrate the vibrant local arts community.
The Art Tour shuttle is free with a tour ticket.
Beginning at either train station at 11:00, the Art Shuttle will follow the tour route that is printed in green on the tour map.
Visitors can hop on and off where they like, when they like, as often as they like.
An Art Shuttle should pass by each shuttle stop every 30 minutes, so visitors can plan their day.
Map/Tickets are available on the shuttle for $10.

Although I have displayed my work at 1978 during the past couple of studio tours,  this year I will be in my own studio where you can see my working space and studio materials.  I will also have artwork on display and available for purchase: large-scale drawings, sketches from my Strange Tales From My Little Black Book series, as well as giclée prints of my drawings.   (I will also have refreshments!)

New for this year is the jitney service so tour-goers don't even need to have a car or to navigate South Orange and Maplewood.  You can catch the Art Shuttle at either the South Orange or Maplewood train stations (accessible from NYC Penn Station via the Midtown Direct Morris/Essex Line) and have access to every stop on the tour (there is a jitney stop at my studio, too!).
There is an extroardinary level of talent in our two towns and this is a wonderful opportunity to see art, to talk directly with the artists about the work that they do and how they do it, and get a glimpse into the often secluded studio spaces of visual artists. 
Hopefully I will see you there!
