Tullos Studios

 

TULLOS STUDIOS– Steve Blackwood, whose work is displayed at Cacace Fine Art, has created a beautiful studio building called Tullos Studios. This is the blue building that houses pioneer Amanda Johnson’s space. At the Blackwood Studio you’ll find Steve’s working studio along with the stained glass studio of Carola Blackwood and a pleasant studio gallery. In the studio gallery, Diane Carter will be showing her intimate nature photography and there will be a retrospective exhibit of the reverse-painted windows of outsider artist Mark Adams. We’re also delighted to welcome the talents of the painters, Ona Steele and Jan Murphy who have set-up their new studios in Tullos Studios.   Another great addition to the alley is the beautiful new space of Pat Kaufman in the back of Ian Levinson’s Cloud House Pottery.
