"In Plain View Artists Studio Tours
Welcome to Winnipeg's 2009-2010
Self-Guided Artists Studio Tours
Tour Dates and TimesVisit Winnipeg artists in their studios on the weekends of November 7 - 8 and December 5 - 6, 2009 and June 5 - 6, 2010.
Studios will be open from 12 noon to 5 pm for all tour dates.
Self-Guided TourTake a self-guided tour and visit artists in their studio environments and view original art in the setting in which it has been created. Get in your car, join a group of friends, or do a walking tour of the areas listed on the map. You will be able to meet and chat with artists and see the working spaces of both established and emerging artists, from basements to self contained studios. You will also have the opportunity to visit galleries in the city who promote and show the work of local artists.
These tours are free of charge. Local artists offer you a peek into their world, where you will experience art in many media - paintings, ceramics, sculpture, watercolour, printmaking, glass art, jewellery-making, wearable art and more.
An abundance of creative, original artworks will be on exhibit for show and for sale. Many artists also accept private commissions. Please note that some studios do not accept credit card payments, but cheques and cash are widely received.
We will be offering tour-goers a chance to draw for a $100 gift certificate for each of these tours. For details, click on the 'draw' link at the top right of this page.
Tour brochures are available and can be obtained at the Explore Manitoba Centre at The Forks (adjacent to the Johnston Terminal) and at Destination Winnipeg, 259 Portage Avenue (204-943-1970) and at the studios and galleries listed in this brochure."
