Last weekend started the Fall Season at The Studio and I couldn't be more excited to see how much we grow. We are almost at the anniversary of The Studio dream. Well, I guess not the dream but the drive to make the dream a reality! I opened for the first time at the end of October 2014, Summer Fest of 2014 is what gave me the push I needed to sell my art in a shop setting. And once again, Summer Fest was successful this year and I think we will be seeing many more faces come through the doors!
To recap for those of you new to The Studio.
We are a seasonal shop located in York, South Carolina on the Flying King Ranch. Nestled back behind the iconic white farm house we fill our walls with regional artists, including artists from Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. (If you are an artist and want to be featured in The Studio, please feel free to email me with examples of your work! firstname.lastname@example.org) As a seasonal shop we are only open at select times of the year. The holiday season (Nov/Dec), Spring (May), Fall (August/Sept) with these openings we change out our inventory to keep things fresh and ready for you to find that perfect gift.
Right now I am featuring 11 artists all who have unique styles and products.
