Open Studio – Sierra Art Trails on Sept. 30, Oct. 1 and Oct 2!

Neill Open Studio

We are very pleased to announce that we will be open for Sierra Art Trails 2016, which is celebrating 14 years of supporting the Arts in the Yosemite Foothills! Mark your calendar for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, September 30th through October 2nd from 10AM to 6PM. My home studio will be full of my fine art prints, books, and posters. Come visit me, and you can also visit Yosemite while in the area!

INVENTORY SALE! Once each year, I offer discounts on a large number of prints in inventory.  The good news is that I have so many photographs, but not enough space in my office so CLEARANCE is the key word!

I hope to see many old friends and meet new ones too!  Let me know if you think you can make it, and ask any questions if you have them. Also, please share this with friends who you think might be interested. Thanks!

See the official website for more details.

The cost of admission is $20.00 for all participating venues and includes the Sierra Art Trails Catalog, your “ticket for two” for the event. The catalog includes a list of participating artists, examples of their work, and maps to the locations of artists’ studios, galleries, and other viewing locations.  Artists are scattered throughout the area. Your catalog and map will guide you.
