Art of the Susquehanna Tour

The PA Arts Experience is offering a fabulous travel package and artist studio tour in September. Much of my work is based on my experiences living and hiking near the Susquehanna River, and I am delighted that this tour offers a variety of experiences for visitors to experience firsthand the pleasures and treasures of the area, as well as chance to meet with artists in their studios and see their work. I am one of the artists featured in the tour and am really looking forward to the experience. Below is the press release for the event, with a link to the website for more information. This is an opportunity not to be missed!
