A wonderfully busy time of year; with the great weather comes spring clean-up, gardening and yard work. It also ushers in the spring and summer art shows that seem to be a reliable venue for showing and selling art for many emerging and established artists.
Coming up soon is the Central island Studio Tour- a free self - guided tour of over 100 studios in the mid Vancouver Island, from Parksville to Campbell River. An amazing array of genres, media and styles are showcased in many fascinating studios and often gorgeous gardens. Brochures are widely available. See the web site centralislandartsguide.ca to map our your route. A mobile app is also available -- download it for the map data free.-Ondago
