To The Editor:
The Shandaken artist studio tour on July 18 - 20 was a great success. I had over 80 visitors over the weekend and sold almost $800 worth of art. Many other artists also did very well. Visitors were from Kingston, Woodstock, Hunter, Windham, even far away lands like Poland, Florida and New York City. No one expected to find so many fine professional artists working in these hills. There were over 40 painters, sculptors, printers, photographers, fine furniture and clothing makers, even high tech electronic and video artists. Too many for anyone to visit in just two days.
