Our Executive Director John Tannous visited some studios during the Williams, Arizona, portion of the art tours associated with A New Latitude this past weekend. There, he uncovered some new and exciting art, met creative people, laughed a lot, and watched a blacksmith demonstration. Below are some photos of the experience.
This weekend, June 25-26, features A New Latitude Art Tours throughout Flagstaff. The art exhibition currently at the Coconino Center for the Arts, A New Latitude, serves as a preview of most of the artists participating in the art tour. Patrons can visit the Center, view art, choose their favorites, and then hit the road and visit the studios of the artists whose art catches their eyes. It should be a fun and active weekend for art. Consider the following a bit of a preview for the kind of experience this weekend will provide.
The studio visits began at Tom and Kris Williams’ home and studio just north of Williams (no relation to the town name). There, seven artists were showing work and conducting demonstrations of their work. Tom Williams took a group of patrons on a tour of his blacksmith studio and then demonstrated a small part of his work.
Here’s a short video of Tom’s demonstration in action:
