In Plain View Artist Studio Tours June 5th & 6th

I did a post on the In Plain View Artist Studio Tours over the Winter and I have just been reminded that it is happening again this weekend.  Have a look at the website for details of artists and artisans participating in the tour.  Below is a description of the tours taken from the In Plain View website.  This will be a fun weekend.  I hope that many of you go out and see the talent we have in Winnipeg.


"In Plain View Artists Studio Tours

Welcome to Winnipeg's 2009-2010
Self-Guided Artists Studio Tours

Tour Dates and Times

Visit 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 Tour

Take 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."
