Artists wanted for 20th anniversary Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Art Studio Tour

Deadline for applications is Dec. 15

Applications are now being accepted for the 20th anniversary of the Art Studio Tour.

Artisans throughout Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge will open their studios to the public on the Mother’s Day long weekend in May.

The event increases the visibility of local artists and celebrates their creativity, said organizer Kerry McLaren, a local potter herself.

This past year the group provided input into the City of Maple Ridge’s proposed Culture Plan and has local artists exhibited at the Maple Ridge Public Library. They also participated in community events like Earth Day, the Haney Farmer’s Market and Culture Days.

The theme of the 2018 tour is Discover the Artists in Your Neighbourhood and will showcase artists and artist groups working in a wide range of media, including painting, jewellery, pottery, glass, textiles, drawing, sculpture and furniture design.

Up to 40 studios will be included in the tour.

The deadline for applications is Dec. 15, 2017.

Forms are available at artstudiotour.ca.
