Studio tours on Sunday
PARKSVILLE — Those seeking a personal look at artists in their element may want to check out Sunday’s sixth annual open studio tour by the Columbia Beach Artisans.
Three local galleries display the work of eight artisans alongside lights, music and hot friendship tea.
Folk art, silk paintings and pottery are just some examples of the wares.
Bring your children or let them play at the beach while you enjoy the ambiance and hospitality of artists in their studios.
Columbia Beach is off of Highway 19A between Parksville and Qualicum Beach. Follow the yellow balloons from the highway. Galleries included in the tour are West Loon Gallery, Sand Dollar Gallery and Aislinn Studio/Gallery. The event runs Sunday Dec. 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fred Davies
