Art and Classic Cars Were Focus of Burning House Wheel Festival

A Wheel Festival showcasing classic cars, an art show, live music and more was held on August 23 at Burning House Art Studio, located on Pioneer Road in Apple Valley.

Burning House Art Studio’s Wheel Festival was an ‘on the town’ good time. From beautiful classic cars to motorcycle displays and rad bicycles. Even a 1989 white hearse.

Lots of hand made, one of a kind, ceramics were on display for sale.

The high energy Blue Henrys and Maggie Vee gave an intense performance throughout the evening.

Burning House owner and art instructor Joan Sowinski loves bringing out the creativity in her students by getting them to believe there are no limits to their imaginations.

She opened her studio in 2008, giving artists a place to create and learn, with pottery lessons including hand-building, molding and potter’s wheel spinning, glazing and firing.

Sowinski received a 2006 scholarship from the Desert Valley Charitable Foundation for her original design of a 9/11 memorial located on the campus of Victor Valley College, and in May 2014 her sculpture design “for The People” was accepted to be built at Victorville City Hall.

The fundraising event brought attention to local artists, bringing out friends and families for a chance to learn about the studio.

Classes and workshops are offered for tuition and materials costs.

A complex yet convenient arrangement of studio hours is also offered.

Workshops for children donated by Sowinski as a way to enrich and inspire the youth of the Victor Valley.

Burning House Art Studio is located 14015 Pioneer Road, Apple Valley.
