Sign up for 2013 Art Studio Tour

Deadline for submissions for the Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Art Studio Tour is March 1

Artists and artisans living in the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows who create original works are invited to participate in the 15th Annual Art Studio Tour.

The self-guided tour of local studios offers a unique opportunity for the public to visit artists in their studios, gain insight into their creative process and work environment and provides the chance to purchase works of art directly from the artist.

The tour takes place May 4 and May 5 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Last year more than 30 studios participated in the event.

• The deadline for submissions is March 1. To join the tour, email Kerry McLaren at kerrymclaren@shaw.ca or visit www.artstudiotour.ca.
