RECAP OF SOOS 2008 - Southern Oregon Open Studios

Creating a successful connection between local artists and our
community to promote a thriving visual arts economy

This was a tour of artists studios in Ashland and Jacksonville Oregon.  This has been a wonderful opportunity for artists to share their creative skills in their own working studios with art enthusiasts. Not only is this educational for all ages, it was a fabulous and fun way to promote a thriving visual arts community!
