The studio is open, the sun is shining and it’s that time of year when we truly look forward to showing off our new works and welcoming visitors to our studio.

With our wonderful location along Oyster Bay, just north of Ladysmith, near Page Point Inn, you might just spy the eagles that have returned, find rhododendrons in full bloom, enjoy wandering the property and our studio, and above all, enjoy seeing our latest creations.

Initiated by the Ladysmith Waterfront Art Gallery, the Spring Art Tour is a three-day self-guided tour featuring 12 locations, including the Ladysmith Waterfront Gallery .  The variety you’ll find at the different studios includes pottery by several different artists, bringing insight to the varied techniques and expressions possible. Potters featured are Josee and Vic Duffhues of JoVic Pottery, Peggy Grigor, Mary Fox and Chip Nary (also known from his appearance on the Dragon’s Den. In addition, visitors will enjoy finding sculpture and whimsical art by Sally Man. Mosaics on canvas by Likova Art Studios, kiln and torch formed glass creations by Cathy and Garth Gilroy, fabric arts by Val Galvin, and abstract painting by Studio 4twentyB. There’s a variety of art work at Bayview Framing and of course at the Waterfront Gallery.

You’ll find maps for your self-guided tour at any of the locations mentioned, and you can also find the map on-line at Spring Art Tour.

Our local Shaw Cable Show recently aired a video that you might enjoy. It was a fun interview because I was able to give the reporter a lesson on wheel-throwing: Here’s Kelly Robinson learning about wheel-throwing.

We sure hope to see you here. Vancouver Island is gorgeous at this time of year, and a studio tour is just the thing to put some extra sunshine into your days.
