Free to the public, the Powell River Studio Tour is an annual self-guided tour of artists and artisans on the Upper Sunshine Coast of British Columbia (BC).
2015 marks the 9th year of the Tour that showcases individual artists and galleries in 20+ locations. Visitors will see the diversity and excellence of the art community in the Powell River region and, as an added bonus, the spectacular natural beauty that can be enjoyed along the way.
A free colour brochure and map will be available in late July at local stores or it can be downloaded from here as a PDF file in June.
The first studio tour, organized by Alfred Muma, a well-known local artist, was held in August, 2004. There were 28 locations with over 40 artists and an estimated 244 visitors.
Each year the Tour is 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 and Brenda Neall with Lowell Morris taking responsibility for sponsorships.
