Yikes — this weekend is starting to look a little scary, what with all the stuff going on.
Add to the list (sorry for delayed appreciation here) of the annual Gorge Artists Open Studios Tour, April 11 (today) through Sunday, April 13. See wild artists in their native habitat.
Thanks to Caroline Mead at the Columbia Center for the Arts for reminding us about this great chance to visit artists in their studios, from The Dalles to Mt. Adams and in between.
It’s all free, and open to everyone. Self-guiding tour maps are available from local visitor info providers, including the Hood River Visitor Center near the Marina.
“All participating artists have been juried in,” Mead says. “They represent the highest quality of work available in the region and a broad spectrum of media, styles and subject matter.”
Oh, you ask, what else is going on?
Hard-Pressed Cider Fest in Odell.
Start of Pear Blossom Festival month.
Start of Gorge Wine Growers Passport tasting room tour month.
