Maria Simon: Portland Open Studios 2012

Maria Simon invites you and your friends to visit her sculpture studio during Portland Open Studios.

Saturday and Sunday, October 13th & 14th, and October 20th & 21st – 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Find me at destination #41 on the tour map, where I’ll be demonstrating my bas-relief carving techniques and unique surfaces using terra sigillata—- my “special secret sauce”. I’ll be creating new work “live” during all four days of the tour. And I’ll be showcasing new work for both on and off the wall.

Brand new for this event are some intimate, colorful, and affordable terra cotta sculptures.

  • Join me and 100+ other artists for this premier Portland event!
  • Your children are most welcome, and will have a chance to get “down ‘n dirty”.
  • You’ll also have an opportunity to sign up for adults’ as well as children’s studio classes.
  • Tour guides and maps are available for purchase from me upon arrival, or pick one up at New Seasons Market & other local retailers, at the event website, or as an iPhone  app.

From Hawthorne bridge, drive east on SE Hawthorne, continue all the way to SE 50th. I’m about 6 blocks south of Hawthorne, between SE Lincoln and Division. Yellow house on East side of the street with big red sign in front that reads “River East Clinic”. Studio is in garage, with entrance on north side of the building, left of the driveway.

I look forward to seeing you.

Warm Wishes,
