Oak Bay artists sought for studio tour

Deadline for artist applications is Thursday, March 3

Calling all Oak Bay artists: Recreation Oak Bay is on the lookout for artists to participate in the 17th semi-annual spring studio tour, April 16 and 17.

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

This juried tour, produced by Recreation Oak Bay, takes place both Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4:30 p.m.

Organizers invite Oak Bay artists willing to open their local studios for the tour.

“We have heard from many of the previous participants who are looking forward to this juried spring 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.”

Applications are available at the Oak Bay Recreation Centre or online at recreation.oakbay.ca and are due by Thursday, March 3.

The two-day special event is free to the public. Brochures with artist images, descriptions and a tour map will be available at recreation.oakbay.ca in early April.

Brochures are also available at the Oak Bay rec centres, Oak Bay municipal hall and the Oak Bay library as well as at local businesses and through participating artists prior to the show.

Artists in Oak Bay who would like to be involved should call Kucera at 250-370-7129.
