Summer Petunias

SOME ARTISTS paint in the warm atmosphere inside the studio and others disappear off to paint in the great outdoors. Others travel in their other work and paint or draw as they go. This is also true of the artists in the Kanata Artists Studio Tour.

Allison Fagan, Catherine Edmonds, Ted Duncan and Tony Cresswell-Jones can be found indoors. John Mlacak spends his weekend painting in the Gatineau and Susan Goold will be found in the spring woods or summer gardens. Brian Kelly travels and paints all across Canada while Rosemary Randell will often be painting in Europe or Scotland. But on the first weekend in May all these artists can be found in their Kanata studios eager to show you their new work. Come out and visit the artists at the Ninth Annual Kanata Artists Studio Tour.

A studio tour is an open house for art. Just watch the local paper for a map or pick up a flyer with map from any of the artists and then set out for a day of art and adventure. At each studio you will be able to meet the artists, take a look at the studio and see where and how the works are created. On view will be many of the artists creations including those special “collection of the artist” pieces that are not usually seen in public. Many of the pieces are for sale so that you can take home a treasure for your own collection.

This year the Kanata Artists Studio Tour will, as usual, be held on the first weekend in May. The studios are open Friday, May 5 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday, May 6 and 7 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. A brochure with a studio location map for this free tour is available from the artists, or from the Chapters book store in the Kanata Centrum Shopping Centre, 400 Earl Grey Drive, Kanata.
