The studio tour takes place on Saturday, June 26 from 10 am to 5 pm and Sunday, June 27 from 10 am to 4 pm. There are 24 artists participating the free tour in Bantam, Cornwall, Goshen, and Warren. Connecticut's northwest corner is full of creative people making contemporary art who are generously opening their studios for the general public.

Banjie Getsinger Nicholas creates delicate drawings in silverpoint, and luminous painting in egg tempera. Birds, nests, feathers, flowers, and landscapes are often paired with intriguing objects, like antique toys, or paper cutouts. Sometimes text is part of her silverpoint drawings. 

For the studio tour, she will likely go into detail about the processes she uses, and the inspiration she gets from birds (she is also a certified wild bird rehabilitator).

Here's a previous post about Banjie, and an article from the Litchfield County Times that features video about how she makes her own paints.

Information about where to go is on the Open Studio Tour's website.

Go! Have fun!
