The 19th Annual Stouffville Studio Tour presents a beautiful opportunity to drive through the countryside enjoying the beautiful colours of autumn as you visit the studios and homes of this year’s participating artists.
This year’s tour includes twenty-three returning artists at 13 locations. You can speak with the artist and enjoy their work in the environment where it was created.
There is something for everyone; fine artists with their different styles and types of paintings and artists/artisans with a wide array of diverse media.
Kirsty Naray is a glass and fibre artist who is a newbie to the annual art tour group. She has been a glass bead maker for many years, showing her work in many different locations. Newer work for her involves fibre, different types of felting, spinning and weaving. She is now trying to incorporate another media, metal into her art. All of her pieces are unique and creative.
Susan Whitebread has also joined the tour this year. She creates beautiful 3 D art from reclaimed and found objects. One type of work uses small boxes destined for the recycling bin. Using these as a base for her creations, she paints them and adds found objects such as discarded jewellery to complete her works of art.
The group of artists hope that lots of friendly faces from previous years, and others that have missed out in the past, take the time to check out the tour this year and help them celebrate 19 years of sharing their art with the community.
There is also the opportunity at each tour stop to enter a draw for a prize of unique, original art.
The tour takes place October 19 and 20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visit WSStudioTour.com for more information.
