FEATURE ARTICLE IN ESCAPEES MAGAZINE SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER ISSUE
I was featured in the September/October issue of Escapees magazine. I actually made the front cover too! It was a nice article written by Sandra Haven about Escapee RVers and their creative, traveling endeavors.
TARJAN STUDIO & GALLERY IS CLOSED IN PORT TOWNSEND, WA!
I regret to say that we closed the gallery in Port Townsend, WA. Unfortunately, Port Townsend has a very short tourist season, and sales were not brisk enough to carry us through the lean winter months. To all my patrons who collected my art this past summer you are the sunshine in my life, and I deeply appreciate your patronage. To all the many visitors who came into the gallery, I enjoyed visiting with you. If I could have made a dollar for every compliment I got, I would definitely not need to close, so I am grateful for all those lovely compliments.
I will be distributing my art to other galleries, and working on a TSG Online.
