An opportunity that doesn’t come along often allows you to visit a local artist’s studio and see what goes into their art.
On September 23rd and 24th, the Iroquois Falls Arts Council is holding a self-guided studio tour.
Arts council fundraising coordinator Tamara Morrissette says it takes you to the workplaces of eight artists, including one on Oil Tank Road, one in Porquis, and two in Shillington.
“You follow the map and you get the opportunity to meet the artists and to see what they’re working on, while you are in their studio,” she explains.
The participating artists paint and draw; sculpt; do fibre art; and make candles and jewellery.
Morrissette says you’ll want both days, if you want to visit all eight studios. A passport and a map will cost you ten dollars.
“The map and the passport are available with a tote bag, and you can purchase that from me,” she says. “We’re still working on the passport, so it will be printed shortly and right after that, they will be for sale.”
