|2005 Studio and Gallery Tour|
Donna Bray-Zakreski and Karen Hatton
I love to tell people the Gabriola Island Thanksgiving Art Studio and Gallery Tour was featured in Canadian House and Home magazine. Really it was just a mention of the dates, but national coverage for the 9th annual Studio Tour was nice.
Fibre, glass, jewelry, leather, painting, metal pretty well all the forms are represented. Produced by our local Arts Council the three day artist studio tour is a great chance to meet others artists and the public. Thousands come to the island for the tour and often the morning Saturday ferries can be overloads with some left to wait another hour.
My neighbour Karen was kind enough to invite me to join her on the tour. She has a large home studio overlooking the Northumberland Channel. It was a joy to "hang" with her for this event. Sales were brisk and attendance was great, we enjoyed ourselves and plan to work on other group showings.
