This photo was taken in woodcut print maker Tom Killion's studio in Inverness, California during an event called the Point Reyes Open Studios Weekend.
The group known as the Point Reyes Open Studios Group was established in 1997 to promote the work of artists living around Tomales Bay. The very spirit of the group's identity is stated in their vision statement, "to act as a resource and support for group members and other artists."
Over thirty members strong, you'll find established artists and ones just now emerging, collectively encouraging and supporting one another. There are photographers, painters, ceramicists, print makers, fiber artists and poets.
The group organizes and operates two open studio weekend events each year over Memorial Day weekend and Thanksgiving weekend, to allow for visitors to view each artist in their studios while they work and give you the opportunity to not only see them in action, but purchase your favorite pieces while you're on site.
Visits to a few of these studios can round out a perfect day of hiking in the Point Reyes National Seashore.
