The 2014 Art Studio Views event, expected to draw more than 300 people for private studio tours on Labor Day weekend, has announced this year’s list of participating artists. Event organizers have noted that three couples, Kevin and Linda Palfreyman, Ted and Melissa Braggins, and Carl and Marilyn Grieco, as well as a mother-son duo, Bianca and Lucas Terranova, are among the participants this year.

“Artists rely heavily on the support of their families throughout the creative process,” stated Joanna Hess, director of Art Studio Views 2014. “The number of married couples we have on the tour this year, as well as our mother-son team Bianca and Lucas Terranova, showcase the beauty of building family bonds through art.”

“This year’s Art Studio Views Tour yet again features exceptional talent,” says Rosemary Bertelle, Vice President of Marketing for Rhinebeck Bank, presenting sponsor of the event. “We always view this event as a unique opportunity to experience the artist’s personal work space. We have enjoyed watching the event grow throughout the years and look forward to another successful event.”

The studios of the artists will be open to the public at no cost on Saturday, August 30, and Sunday, August 31, from 11am-5pm each day. Artists will be available at each location to answer questions and discuss work on display. The participating artists are all located in Northern Dutchess County, and are as follows:
