Date:Saturday, October 01, 2011
Title:22nd Annual Blue Coast Artists Studio Tour - Saugatuck to S Haven

For over twenty years the Blue Coast Artists have been delighting and educating
the public with their annual Fall Tour of Studios. Viewers are invited once again to
experience the creative process in action on Saturday & Sunday, October 1st and
2nd from 10am - 6pm.

See a piece of pottery form, watch glass beads take shape in the torch, a tree
come alive through brushstrokes or see a piece of pottery become engulfed in
flames during a Raku firing. These are just a few of the demonstrations that art
lovers of all ages are sure to enjoy during the 22nd Annual Blue Coast Artists Fall
Tour of Studios. This annual West Michigan autumn event runs from 10AM-6PM
both days and is free of charge.

Over the past twenty-two years the tour has continued to be an educational and
interesting experience for all, by offering a behind-the-scenes look into the studios
of working artists.

The 2011 tour includes six working artists' studios located between South Haven
and Saugatuck. Each site features demonstrations, original artwork, refreshments
and more. Hands-on art making projects, unique art abodes, a haunted garden
and fall color makes this creative experience fun for the whole family. The tour can
be completed in one day and a tour map is available at each site or on the web at:
www.bluecoastartists.com

The 2011 Blue Coast Artists Fall Tour includes:
1) Lattner Studio (319 Blue Star Hwy., South Haven) The studio of Suzi Lattner
Zwissler features her original paintings and drawings in a variety of media. The
gardens and woodland that surround her home inspire Suzi. She will be on hand
demonstrating oil painting techniques.

2) Blue Star Pottery (337 Blue Star Hwy., South Haven) The studio of Mark Williams
features handmade stoneware including bowls, pitchers, casseroles, teapots and
platters.  His work is embossed with Mark’s elegant textured designs, which he
creates by combining the pottery techniques of textured slab and throwing on the
pottery wheel.  Mark will open a new kiln load of his work daily on tour weekend.

3) Khnemu Studio LLC (6322 113th Ave., Fennville) Enjoy the fall harvest at this
1890's farm estate, complete with a restored barn which houses a unique
contemporary fine art and craft gallery featuring over 20 Michigan Artists and the
working studio of ceramic artist Dawn Soltysiak. Dawn will have wheel throwing,
Raku pottery firing and also a "make & take" art opportunity for kids of all ages.  
Come and see the newly built down-draft car kiln in an old silo. Farm fresh
pumpkins and popcorn are also available.

4) Blue Roan Studio (6301 122nd Ave., Fennville) This stop features flame-worked
glass beads and wire sculptures of artist Jessica Bohus and an exhibition entitled
"Owls".  Jessica will have a wide array of jewelry made with glass beads, silver &
copper. The studio is in an 1890’s schoolhouse with many original features
including a swing set and blackboards and Jessica will offer flame-worked glass
bead making demonstrations on both days.

5) Lake Effect Pottery (2139 66th St., Fennville)   An antique turkey barn is the
workplace for potter Lee McKee.  Lee offers a diverse selection of affordable hand-
thrown, functional stoneware items including:  wine goblets and wine coolers,
French butter dishes, tiles, dinnerware, fountains, birdhouses and bird baths and
tea sets. Equine art is inspired by Brave Warrior, the resident horse. Lee will
demonstrate wheel throwing techniques during Fall Tour.


6) The Front Door Studio (6934 120th Ave, Glenn)  Be enchanted by the idyllic
setting
of a fully restored, century old farmhouse where you'll find the mixed media
paintings of internationally collected artist Anke Richert-Korioth.  Working from her
summer studio, the memories from her travels as well as local scenes come to life
in her work. Anke will demonstrate how she creates her unique and colorful
paintings, combining acrylic paint with photography, plaster, paper and foil.

A GREAT ART GETAWAY IN WEST MICHIGAN...SINCE 1990!.
