Hank Hall's Tin Bin Studio - Ready for the Roadtrip!

 Hank Hall, one of 33 artists participating in the 14th Annual Artisans Road Trip in NW Iowa, invites you into his new workshop Tin Bin Studio on Oct. 14 and 15.

Located behind his home at 15330 250th Avenue, Spirit Lake, on East Lake Okoboji, the retrofitted grain bin houses Hank's clay studio and can be adapted for his drawing, painting, and mixed media processes.

his studio after finishing painting a table area which 
he'll be demonstrating his artwork during 
the Artisans Road Trip!

A retired high school art teacher and former owner of Art on 16th in Spirit Lake, Hall is pleased to unveil his new creative environment and demonstrate some of his art methods. 

After visiting Hall, road trippers are invited to go east about 1/2 a mile to see Bill Lieb's sculptures at his home at 15657 250th Avenue.
