Back Roads Studio Tour

Comments

I’m looking for the artist that does customer metal work. My father passed away about 2 weeks ago and we are looking for a custom piece to place on his wooden urn. The ones that the funeral home offers really do not fit his personality
A basket of woolen apples ready for the Tour.
Pumpkins are ripening on my hooking frame in preparation for this year's Tour.
Oh, no! We missed it!:( We didn’t get a card telling us when it would be held this year. We nearly always go. I was really looking forward to this. Is there a mailing list we should be on? Since we’d always been notified before, I assumed we were already on it. Big sigh...😕
I want to say thank you for everyone who came out to my house during the Back Roads Studio Tour this weekend. Here is a picture of the raffle project I was working on during this tour. I want to thank everyone who purchased a raffle ticket and I will be pulling a winner tomorrow around 6pm. I will post the winning number on my page, Facebook.com/stainedglassbyroberthill, and the Back Roads Studio page. Good luck.
The Backroads Studio Tour will be held on Oct. 20-21, 2018. We hope to see you all on our tour.
The Backroads Studio Tour will be at Stone Cow Brewery on June 10 from 11-4. There will be 20+ vendors for the Fiber Festival at the Brewery as well as live music, beer and great food! The Stone Cow is located at Carter & Stevens Farm on 500 West St. Barre, MA
This past October I’ve sent in my application with a few pictures of my completed work. Could I share with the group pictures of other completed projects I’ve done? They will be projects I’ve complete for this Christmas.
Hello, could I get some info on the tour? This is my first time and not sure what artist will be giving tours. I moved to Barre in 2016 and I am a stained glass artist.
New paintings for Christmas cards. They will be for sale at this year's Tour: Sept 30th & Oct 1st. Hope to see you there!

My latest work.

03/31/2021

Elisabeth Hyder is a beloved local artist from North Brookfield. Her paste paper collages are the perfect combination of artistry and precision. Using the traditional technique of pigments on paper, she brings to them her own designs and colors. Into the wet starch paste she draws, rolls, stamps, or tools various patterns, often producing three-dimensional effects, many of them one-of- a-kind. From the dried sheets she fabricates boxes, journals, cards, port-folios, and framed color studies and collages. Others use her papers for displays, advertising, and bookbindings.

Visit the gallery website to see more of her work, or to contact her directly.

Gallery Hours: Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 10-2, due to the pandemic. Longer hours coming soon...

KNOW YOUR LOCAL ARTISTS: A new series where each week you’ll learn more about the artists among us and see several pieces of their work on the West Brookfield Art & Frame page.

Karen Healy lives in Rutland, Massachusetts. This gorgeous hooked piece would be a lovely addition to any space, or make a wonderful gift!

The Dappled Ewe Rug Hooking

“Drawing, color, antiques, historic crafts and country fairs… All of these favorites came together in 1999 when, at the Sterling fair, I signed up for a traditional rug hooking class with Barbara Costello – the founder of the Wachusett chapter of the Association of Traditional Hooking Artists (ATHA). Ever since, I’ve been friends with Barbara, a member of the ATHA guild, hooking rugs, and dyeing wool fabric for fiber arts. I began selling my dyed wool when fellow guild member asked to buy some. I started selling small bits of hooked work at the Festival of Forgotten Arts organized by the Rutland Historic Society. And I’ve taught classes along the journey, too, primarily through Petersham Art Center. My style is primitive, although because I love color, I deviate from the traditional dark earth tones of primitive rugs. I guess I’d label my work as folk art. My designs are simple, hand-drawn on linen foundation cloth and hand- hooked in quarter-inch-wide strips of wool fabric. Like the designs of women during the 1800’s when rug hooking first became popular in New England, my designs incorporate things that I experience and enjoy in everyday life. I don’t have a formal studio; I dye wool on the kitchen stove and hook either in my favorite chair, or in the sun-filled dining room, or outside on the back deck when the weather is nice. I try to keep my life simple, doing what I love while using and appreciating what I have.”

It’s reason enough to stop by Jeremy’s studio to look at his stunning custom built barn. More surprises await inside when you meet our talented blacksmith and learn how versatile he is.
