South Corvallis Art Walk 6th Annual

Our new Art Walk Banner!

The 2017 South Corvallis Art Walk was our biggest year yet with 17 artist studios and over 35 local artists!  We had a huge diversity of artwork  featuring a wide range of handmade art including: hand knits, paintings, cards + collage, ceramics, sculpture, live storytelling performances, letterpress, artisan bread, herbal products, mosaics, jewelry, up-cycled robots and figurines, basketry, fabric bowls and vases, handmade soaps, ornaments and so much more!! Diana Rose Studio hosted 3 additional artists:
Avie Meadows of Avie Joy Studios: ceramic platters, ornaments and paintings
Justyna Pohl and Magda Moleska: felted animal ornaments and Harry Potter gifts
 Julie Obriant: Stained glass and collage and beaded glass ornaments

I was also excited to host this event in my new (unfinished) studio space which was really fun and gave people a feel for the new space.

Backyard Studio Progress

I am so excited to announce that Diana Rose Studio will be moving into a new backyard studio space in February 2018! I thought I would post some progress photos of the building which has been in progress over the past year and a half or so and is very near completion.  My very talented husband designed the building and has done a great deal of the building work himself and with the help of TSE Construction and a few other local contractors. I am beyond grateful!
