The Village Artists once again hosted an inspirational Tour. We followed the ballooned signs first to Vanessa Brownbridge's studio on Maple Street and were greeted by Guest Artist, Divino Mucciante displaying his work on Vanessa's front porch. Our next stop was at Beverly Sneath's studio and it was a special treat to meet Maia selling her beautiful birdhouses on Grandma's deck. We stopped for lunch at Nature's Corner along the way and ended our Tour with a visit at the studio of Eddy Papez. So creative. Love his work. ~Gwenn Alves~
