Markleeville artists open studios

Fourteen artists, in or near Markleeville, with studios streamside or surrounded by pastures and forest, will open their doors to the public from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Autumn in Alpine County causes an artistic palette of vibrant hues to be splashed into canyons and across ridges wherever aspens, willows and cottonwoods grow, and the Markleeville artists want to share this spectacular event with others.

Participating artists and artisans are: Sandy Baenen, miniature watercolors; Todd Branscombe, photographs; Jan Brees, metal leaves and rock birds; Jeff Brees, topiaries and metal sculptures; Kathy Caldwell, jewelry; Peter Chope, watercolors; Susan Flakus, metal sculptures; Gina Gigli, etchings and masks; Kaye Jobst, beads and baskets; Ellen Martin, quilts and dolls; Charles Muench, oil paintings, Carolyn and Mark Vaughn, raku pottery; and Jennifer Vaughn, photography.

Maps guiding visitors to the artists' home studios will be presented to registrants at the Alpine County Chamber of Commerce on Main Street in Markleeville each day of the free studio tour.

For information, contact Gina Gigli at or (530) 694-2253.
