Fall is here and along with it, the 2015 Crossing Borders Studio Tour.  From Friday September 25 through October 4, studios along the North Shore open their doors to the public.  Besides the 7 studios, there are an additional 20 or so guest artists showing their work at the different venues.  A great excuse to take in the north shore colors and pick up some new art on the way.  This week I share a conversation I had with founder and artist Lee Ross.  I have links here to the 2015 tour map and additional artists involved.
