Seven artists will reveal the inner workings of their studios to the public during the yearly self-guided North Shore Artists Studio Tour from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 15-16 from Pupukea to Mokuleia.

In Waialua, Bernie Moriaz will showcase creations fashioned from “found things.” Margo Goodwill has island-style paintings and mixed media to share. Ceramicists Jeff and Carol Lee make plates, dishes, cups, and bowls with local flair and, according to carver Jay Marr’s web page, he brings dead wood to life.

“What I like best about being part of the studio tour is to be a part of such an extraordinary group of people,” said Bill Braden, who conducts ceramics and fine arts workshops in Haleiwa with Jerome Heck.“These very special people, and their spouses and team members have done such an amazing job of putting together this fun community-wide event.”

Visitors to Braden’s barn-shaped workplace can view the God-centered art that he and wife Jenny create. “We also will have a steel relief sculpture that is being produced for the exterior niches of St. John Vianney Catholic Church in Kailua,” he added.

Sculptor and painter J Forest Ocean Bennett, one of the five founding members of the studio tour, said all of them volunteer in the art community and have a high level of professionalism and dedication.

“I thought if we could get this started, maybe other communities would do it too - like Kailua or Kahala artists - so there is something going on all the time,” said Bennett, who describes her work as eclectic.

For details, call 779-8606.
