Open Studio- Witness The Magic

Antje Roitzsch Studio 310 Youngtown Road, Lincolnville, ME

Have you ever wondered how a mobile gets its balance? During this open studio, you will get the chance to see works in progress and you can witness the magic of sculptures taking to the air, balancing and moving. Additionally, walk through the garden display and enjoy the artwork on the open porches. Dynamically moving sculptures need to be seen in person, no photo will give justice to the magic. Enjoy this chance of seeing mobiles as well as a line of jewelry and belt buckles in different sizes and materials. I look forward to meeting you. - Antje
