Shared Experiences: By Sandi Sigurdson

Each year, community leader, Sandi Sigurdson, marks her calendar for the Open Studios Art Tour and plans her route.  Recently, she looked around her home and noticed all of the great pieces she and her husband Steve McGrath have purchased during the Tour.  “I bet lots of visitors have shared my experiences on the Tour and found ‘gems’ for their homes,” Sandi pronounced.  “Every year I am surprised by some unique and talented artist!”
