Though I worked for the School District of Haverford Township for nine years, I had no idea that this community was such a hotbed of artistry! There were six studios on the tour, and all but one of them was located within a block or two of one another. Each studio was in an artist's home, and additional artists (usually four or five) brought their work in to display and sell, as well.
It felt strange to walk right into someone's home and be ushered upstairs past kitchen cupboards and family photos and bedroom doors to find an art studio in their attic space!
The first place had amazing mosaic work on the front porch, around the fireplace, and in the kitchen, but because it was someone's personal home and these areas weren't part of the tour, I didn't feel that I could go around snapping photos of their personal spaces! I got a few shots out front, though, where surely no one would mind:
|Look how they used toy cars and trucks as mosaic pieces on the front porch--love that!|
|Unfortunately, in my haste, I cropped the poor dog's nose!|
