Coming Soon! The wonder of studios! Visit those secret places where the magic happens. Studios open August 7 & 8, 10 am - 3 pm. Here are five photos to give you a sneak peak. Twenty-five Cortes Island artists and artisans (with ten new additions this year) will be opening their studios to reveal the process of discovery, invention and imagination behind the art we see in galleries. From sheep to shawl from alpaca to sweater, from board to box, from clay to bowl, from sketch to painting, from stone to sculpture -- all the behind-the-scenes steps, challenges and miracles of creativity disclosed. Follow the balloons to artistic adventure! Thanks to the Cortes Island Museum for sponsorship and managing the ticket sales. For information contact the Museum at cimastwincomm.ca or call 250-935-6340. Or contact Studio Tour Coordinator Dianne Bersea at 250-935-6719. Tickets will be available shortly at the Museum and island outlets.
