Call for Artists for Oak Bay Fall Studio Tour 2017

Oak Bay Parks, Recreation, and Culture is proud to announce the 18th semi-annual Oak Bay Artists’ Studio Tour taking place Saturday, November 4 and Sunday, November 5, from 12pm to 4:30pm. Many of Oak Bay's established and emerging artists will use their homes and studios as backdrops to display original watercolour, acrylic, and oil paintings, fibre, photography, woodcuts, glass, and pottery creations. The tour is juried and produced by Oak Bay Parks, Recreation, and Culture.

Oak Bay artists willing to open up their studios for a few hours during this weekend in November are encouraged to apply. “We have heard from many of the previous participants who are looking forward to this juried event again, but we always want to find new studios in Oak Bay,” said Mary Kucera, of Oak Bay Parks, Recreation, and Culture marketing. For those artists whose homes are not well suited to a studio tour, there is an option to apply to use a shared space in the Neighbourhood Learning Centre (adjacent to Oak Bay High School) to display artwork during the tour. Please contact the Arts & Culture Programmer at (250) 370-7908 for more information about displaying at the Neighbourhood Learning Centre.

The Studio Tour is a great way to showcase Oak Bay's many talented artists. If you are an artist in Oak Bay who would like to be involved, fill out an application at the Oak Bay Recreation Centre, 1975 Bee St, or online at https://www.oakbay.ca/sites/default/files/recreation/documents/art-tour-application-2017.pdf and https://www.oakbay.ca/sites/default/files/recreation/documents/art-tour-waiver-2017.pdf, and submit by Friday, September 22, 2017. There is a $45 registration fee which goes towards advertising and promotion.

This two-day special event is free to the public. Brochures with artist images, descriptions, and a tour map will be available at http://www.recreation.oakbay.ca in mid-October. Brochures will also be available at the Oak Bay Recreation Centres, Oak Bay Municipal Hall, and the Oak Bay Library as well as at local businesses and through participating artists prior to the show.
