Last night I was one of the four featured artists at an art show opening at Bare Bones Studio in Ely, MN. Owner and Interior Designer, Ellen Cashman, was there to greet customers, make sales and also provided refreshments.
I demonstrated weaving my deer antler baskets outside on the front deck, which drew in quite a few customers, but didn’t make any sales for me that night. However, all the other artists had quite lively sales, so that was “a good thing.”
The art Ellen has chosen for her gallery consists of primarily rustic furniture, Native American, or pieces with a “North Woods” flare, such as my antler baskets and outdoor or fishing related paintings, pine needle baskets, birch bark mirrors, etc.
Stop in for a visit anytime you are up in this neck of the woods. It’s right by the Boundry Waters area which separates Minnesota from Canada. The whole northern Minnesota area surrounding Ely is rich with resorts, cabins, fishing and boating, and in winter, sled dogs, snowmobiles and skiing.
