Sign up for 16th Art Studio Tour

Deadline for artist submissions from Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows is Feb. 15

Artists and artisans in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows are invited to participate in the annual Art Studio Tour.

Held on Mother’s Day weekend in May,  it’s an event not to be missed. The tour is a veritable treasure hunt of arts, featuring both contemporary and traditional work, presented by both established and emerging artists.  You will find painters, potters, jewelers, sculptors, fabric artists and more.

This is a unique opportunity to meet the artists, explore the stories behind their art, gain insight into their creative process as well as their work environment.

Who knows, you might just find the inspiration to explore your own inner creativity.

Artists who want to participate in the tour, which takes place May 10 and May 11, must sign up before Feb. 15.
