Take some time for art this weekend at the annual Oak Bay Artist’s Studio Tour.

The self-guided tour runs Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4:30 p.m.

Twenty-two of Oak Bay’s established and emerging artists will use their homes and studios as backdrops to display the products of their creativity in a variety of original watercolour, acrylic, oil, fibre, photography, woodcut, glass and clay creations. The juried tour is produced by Recreation Oak Bay.

The two-day special event is free to the public. Brochures with artist descriptions and a tour map will be in today’s Oak Bay News and will also be available before the event at Oak Bay Recreation centres, Oak Bay municipal hall and the Oak Bay library as well as at local businesses on Estevan and Oak Bay Avenue and through participating artists.

The Oak Bay Artist Studio Tour brochure with map is available at www.recreation.oakbay.ca.
