50 Miles of Art Recap

Saturday March 23rd was the beautiful day before the unusually late snow storm of March 24th. I hope you got a chance to get to Clarksville and visit the open studios and artist demonstrations held throughout town. Here are a few pictures I took on the Saturday morning I spent in Clarksville during this Spring’s 50 Miles of Art.

The 50 Miles begins at Clarksville, MO, and continues on Highway 79 north through Louisiana, MO (10 miles north of Clarksville), and ends in Hannibal, MO (50 miles north of Clarksville).

Inside Clarksville Glassworks

  • Glass work demonstrations at the Clarksville Glassworks Studio:
    All Day: December 15, 16; 2012

Recently, I was lucky enough to take photos of Lance, a local artist at the Clarksville Glassworks Studio. Lance is originally from Pittsfield Illinois and is currently a resident artist at Astral Glass Studios in New Haven Missouri. Astral Glass is the sister studio of our own Clarksville Glassworks Studio in Clarksville Missouri.

A few years ago, Lance was a resident artist in Clarksville and luckily he likes to return to our town to demonstrate his technique and love of glass work to Clarksville visitors and residents.

Check out the photos of the Lance at work. Then find a weekend to visit Clarksville for a live demonstration at Clarksville Glassworks. The next one I know of will be All Day: December 15, 16; 2012!
