Visitors to Linda's Open Studio in
the first two weekends of June will be able to view her recent work
in their native habitat, the setting that gave birth to them.
A unique feature to her Open Studio is that visitors also have the opportunity
to create their own sheet of hand-made paper on a table in the garden
outside. The acoustic "twisted roots" band, Smooth Toad &
friends, will drop by on Saturday afternoons to serenade visitors from
the back porch.
