Bruno and her husband bought and redesigned the old Casco Town Hall that had been moved to a property next to the Blue Star Highway, just down the road from Williams’ studio, while they were still living in Chicago. When they moved permanently to South Haven, they built their studio next to their town hall home that now houses both her metalsmithing and Bruno’s photography studios, as well as their gallery.
Bruno also sells her wares at a couple of art fairs a year, and at the LaFontsee Gallery in Grand Rapids, MI and Synchronicity Gallery in Glen Arbor, MI. She was a member of the Blue Coast Artists from 2012 to 2017 and while no longer a member, her studio is open during the tour. She can be reached by appointment year round through her website www.TownHallStudio.com.
Her husband Torry Bruno, who was both a photographer and manager of the photography departments at both the Pioneer Press and the Chicago Tribune for more than 30 years, helped usher the Tribune into the digital age. Today, he has rediscovered the art of photography and sells his photography and wax encaustic paintings in the Town Hall Studio alongside his wife’s jewelry.
The Blue Coast Artists annual tour held the weekend of October 6 and 7 from 10 am to 6 pm has eight participating artists this year between South Haven, Saugatuck and Fennville. These artists open their studios showcasing their art, offering refreshments and demonstrating during a perfect weekend for taking in the local autumn color. www.bluecoastartists.net/fall-tour.html
