Art Trek 2013 opens tonight

Published 4:16 am Friday, April 26, 2013

Toby Wolter, a new clay sculptor in the area, has his studio just across the state line in the same building as Little Hat Tavern.

James Cornell’s studio, Cornell Art Pottery, sits at the crossroads of Hwy. 14 and Hwy. 11 – the scenic Cherokee Foothills Parkway.  At Carol Beth Icard’s studio on S. Shamrock Avenue and Turner, she is happy to show work in progress and talk about her process. Marie-Christine’s Art and Horses Studio, where she sculpts, is a lovely 4-mile drive east of downtown Landrum in Fairview Farms on Landrum Mill Road.  And Mike Hayes, an abstract painter who takes inspiration from oceans and rivers, has a renovated barn studio just across the pasture from Maire-Christine. Zenzera’s restaurant in Landrum hosts a collection of work by these artists and invites the public to visit for an after-party immediately following the Preview Party at Upstairs Artspace.

While at the Upstairs, be sure to pick up a voucher to redeem at Zenzera’s for a free glass of house wine tonight, Friday April 26.
