Spring is here and that means that the much anticipated Quadra Island Studio Tour is set to kick off. On June 1st and 2nd visitors can enjoy a glimpse into the working studios of most of the island’s creative community. The Tour presents work in many media – blown glass, stone sculpture, pottery, photography, fabric, printmaking, painting and more plus it offers an opportunity to meet the talented individuals who create the artwork and fine crafts. A group exhibition in the Community Centre displays work from all of the participants, and visitors can stop in for refreshments and to browse through the many displays there. Visitors can enter the draw to win one of the many art prizes that will be given away. The ticket comes with a clearly marked map of the studio locations and more information about the 30 participating artists and artisans. Many of these studios continue to be open throughout the year – check the brochure for details.
Tickets can be purchased for $5 per person (kids 12 and under are free) from:
Hummingbird Office and Art Supply, Quadra Tourist Info Centre,
Campbell River Public Art Gallery, Comox Valley Art Gallery (Courtenay) and at Quadra Island resorts.
