Central Island Studio Tour & Art Sale – Fall 2016 Edition


The tour includes both well-known and emerging creators of many genres – from oil landscapes and abstract acrylics to upcycled wood & glass sculpture. You’ll find master crafters, stone carvers, jewellers, wood sculptors, painters of all description, fused and kiln-fired glass makers, furniture-makers, photo-collagers, weavers and pyrographers!
Studios are open from 10am to 4:30pm on November 25, 26 & 27*. Artists will be in attendance at each studio, to share their work and their process with you, answer your questions… and happily sell you their wares!
This fourth tour encompasses Parksville to Black Creek – approximately 160km in total – and we are pleased to welcome ten new studios to the tour family: Brian Scott in Black Creek, and Roy Hancliff in Parksville, along with Lana Burchill, Yvette Menard, Tatjana Stolting, Linda Gooding and Pam Faunt in the Courtenay/Comox, Peter Wallin and Chelsea Waite in Royston, and Linda Vermeulen in Fanny Bay.
There is no fee to visit the studios, and many will have surprise treats to share!
This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase art directly from the artists – which is the absolute best way to support them. There are no commissions on sales made during the tour, and artists often have very special pricing for original works plus exclusive prints and other works that are never seen in galleries or gift shops.
