Recreation Oak Bay looking for artists willing to open their homes

Artists’ Studio Tour Nov. 15, 16

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 original watercolour, acrylic, oil, fibre, photographic, woodcut, glass and pottery creations in the upcoming Oak Bay Artists’ Studio Tour.

This juried tour, which is produced by Recreation Oak Bay, takes place on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 15 and 16, from noon to 4:30 p.m.

Right now, organizers are trying to find Oak Bay artists willing to open up their Oak Bay studios for a few hours on this weekend in November.

“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. If you are an artist in Oak Bay who would like to be involved, call Kucera at Recreation Oak Bay at 250-370-7129. Applications are available now and are due by Wednesday, Oct. 1.

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

Brochures will also be available at the Oak Bay Recreation Centres, the Oak Bay Municipal Hall and the Oak Bay Library as well as at local businesses and through participating artists prior to the show.

For more information call Kucera, at Recreation Oak Bay at 250-370-7129 or email mkucera@oakbay.ca
