Artists join in studio tour of art in Lewes on March 29 Artists in the Lewes area will host a free, self-guided tour of their studios on Saturday, March 29. The tour will not only show- case the private workspaces, but give participants the chance to in- teract with the artists. Lewes artist Constance Costi- gaa a feafbfFine Arts at George Washington University, will participate in the studio tour. Costigan's studio is located on the corner of Market and Cedar Streets in Lewes. She has pursued seminal themes of the human spir- it, such as the human life cycle, the environment, and lived experi- ence in space and time. These themes are embodied in paintings and pastels representing interior landscapes that depict energy fields between conventionally de- fined mountainous structures, as well as the interplay between pos- itive and negative spaces. Her work often suggests ritual sites and spiritual presences, and is about matter - from cosmic to the atomic - that is in motion and in the process of transformation. Costigan has studied the works of meditative art, especially those of Native American Indians in New Mexico where she has visit- ed several times. She has also studied the works of Tibetan Bud- dhists in Labakh, India. Watercolor Continued from page 63 hearing impaired since birth.

Costigan said she feels that the upcoming studio tour will be ben- eficial because it will demonstrate the process an artist follows to create his or her work. "It gives people a better idea of what artists do," she said. "It's better than just seeing a finished wL i When they see a work in context, they get a better idea of what artists go through." Julie and Tony Bailey of Lewes will also participate in the studio tour. The Baileys, who live at 212 Cedar Street, each have their own studios.

She said she thinks the studio tour will be ben- eficial to local artists because of the exposure it will provide them. Tony Bailey, a consultant for the high-tech glass industry, will be demonstrating and displaying examples of artistic glass-blow- ing. He is currently writing a computer program for the opera- tion of a Litton auto-lathe, which involves the robotic operation of the matin'no to manipulate glass.
