First City Studio Cruise This Weekend in Bemidji!
For ten years now, artists in the Bemidji area have invited the public into their homes and studio spaces to share their processes and craft during the annual First City Studio Cruise. The event kicks off this Friday and runs thru Sunday. Maps for the the self guided tour are available at the Bemidji Visitors Center by Paul and Babe, the Watermark Art Center, Gallery North, many of hotels around town and at the KBXE studio at 305 America Ave in downtown Bemidji. If you can't get to one of those places, here's a link to an online version of the map. Kathy Towley, event co-organizer and woodworker, Cindy Burger, a jeweler, and Mary Therese, a watercolorist, muralist, collage artist and silk scarf artist stopped by the KBXE studio to talk about on the morning show today. The studio cruise is a great way to explore the arts in the region and a fun way to get ahead on your holiday shopping. Check it out!
