There are over 500 painted items built from gourds each with its own story. I guarantee you have never seen anything like it.


Go south on Central one block past where Higdon Ferry crosses Central near the Chevy dealership. Take Birchwood Bay one block and turn right onto Brighton Terrace. Go one block and it’s on the Corner of Brighton Terrace and Brighton Place across from Quapaw Rehab. The brick house with the flag and lots of flowers. Park in the 2nd drive and enter through the gate in the white fence. The studio is on the right in the courtyard.
