to the first Central Okanagan Open Studios, one of the most exciting
visual arts events in the Central Okanagan.
two weeks in September artists invite you to witness art in the
making, and to explore the workings of their studios. Step inside a
potters wet room, discuss carving with a stonemason. Learn where
artists find inspiration and why they do what they do. What makes
them so passionate about their craft. For visitors, we open our
doors to you.
Artists are numbered and listed by
geographical location of the venue which corresponds to the map
below. We suggest you use this with a road map. Each section details
the artist's work, venue, opening days and times. Please be aware
that some artists require you to call for an appointment, to ensure
they're at home when you are able to visit.
We would like this opportunity to thank everyone
who has contributed to make Open Studios the event that it is. We
are grateful for all the hard work that goes into making this an
enjoyable and successful event, particularly from artists,
galleries, and our regional coordinators. We would also like to
thank our sponsors and funders:
