Spotlight on the Marin Fencing Academy During 19th Annual Marin Open Studios
The 19th Annual Marin Open Studios (MOS) occurred on May 5-6 and May 12-13, 2012. MOS was founded by painter Kay Carlson and sculptor Tim Rose back in 1993 with the goal of creating an event that “would allow artists to be self-sufficient financially, in part by fostering local collectors’ interests.” — Marin Open Studios
With 260 artists exhibiting ranging from ceramics to jewelry, photography to painting, as well as technology and new media, MOS supports artists visibility through cultural and educational programing.
Dig In Magazine had the special opportunity to stop by the Marin Fencing Academy during MOS to view the work of local artists. Greeted by curator Terrence Howell, we were fascinated by the range of work shown in the gallery and greatly inspired by the artwork on view. Participating artists included Terrence Howell, Mark Lifvendahl, Sarah Spector (website coming soon), Ashley Bell and Matt Rapalyea.
