Artists sought for studio tour

Oak Bay's fall art studio tour is approaching fast

Oak Bay artist Margaret Case took part last year in the fall studio.

Oak Bay is on the lookout for new and returning artists for the fall rendition of its twice-yearly studio tours.

Many of Oak Bay’s established and emerging artists open homes and studios as backdrops to display the products of their creativity in a variety of original watercolour, acrylic, oil, fibre, photographic, woodcut, glass and pottery creations.

“We have heard from many of the previous participants who are looking forward to this juried fall event again, but we always want to find new studios in Oak Bay,” said Mary Kucera, Oak Bay Recreation marketing.

“The studio tour is a great way to showcase the many talented artists in Oak Bay’s neighbourhood.”

The juried tour, produced by Recreation Oak Bay, takes place Nov. 14 and 15, from noon to 4:30 p.m. each day.

Artists wanting to get involved can call Kucera at 250-370-7129 or find applications online at  recreation.oakbay.ca. The deadline to register is Oct. 1.
