2012 marked the 8th and last year of the Powell River Studio Tour. Started in 2004
Alfred Muma, a well-known local artist, the Tour featured individual artists and galleries in 20+ locations from Lang Bay to Lund. Visitors were able to see the diversity and excellence of the art community in the Powell River region and, as an added bonus, some spectacular, natural beauty along the way.
Each year the Tour was organized by a few volunteers who put in their time and effort
to promote the region as an art community as well as the individual participating
artists and artisans. The committee members are Alfred Muma, Richard Benson, Vi Isaac
Brenda Neall with Lowell Morris taking responsibility for sponsorships.
We like to think the Tour will be missed by the 200+ people who enjoyed it every year.
In order for local artists and artisans to continue to have a venue to showcase their work, the Powell River Arts Council chose to work with Coast Cultural Alliance, a non-profit organization that sponsors the Sunshine Coast Art Crawl. Powell River artists and artisans will be invited to participate in the crawl either individually or in a group at Dwight Hall and the Lang Bay Community Hall.
