Kathy Hooper

Whenever I open my studio door In some deep way I feel like I am walking into a place I wish I was more like. It is a clear, open, light place, quiet and full of possibilities. I love to be up there.  Mostly I think I will have work on paper this year and some painting and clay pieces.  I hope that you will be able to come and visit me on the Tour weekend!

Liz Miller

All things textile have always been a fascination and a creative outlet for me. Colour, texture, and the manipulation of fibres are more than passions, they are a way of life. Hand dyed, handspun, handknit, handwoven items and yarns in luxurious fibres and vibrant colours. Demoing weaving and dyeing all weekend during the Tour.

Helen Shideler

For Helen painting is a celebration of life and how light and colour interact.  The real joy is in the challenge and complexity and getting it right. She constantly strives to hold herself to the highest standards. Contemporary realism in watercolour and acrylics.

Anne Christensen

Anne’s appreciation of the outdoors is evident in her art work. Having fallen in love with the many beaches along the Bay of Fundy, she spends most weekends scouring the shores where she finds new inspiration and treasures every visit. Whimsical art from beach finds that is bound to put a smile on your face!

Bruce Gray

“Visual artist Bruce Gray will be opening his workshop studio to the public for the first time. Enjoy a striking collection of works and tour of workshop and works in progress”

Donna Berry

“I have a fascination with realistic works and this is reflected in the subjects I choose to paint. I am drawn to  scenes with a strong light and shadow system. And even more importantly for me is capturing a mood  and I achieve this by my choice of  hues and tonal values  selected from the color wheel.
