The qathet Studio Tour, formerly known as the Powell River Studio Tour, has been a popular summer event for 15 years. This year there are 32 artists in 25 locations from Lang Bay to Lund. The Tour, which is free and self-guided, allows visitors to see the diversity and excellence of the art community in the qathet region and 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. Alternately, there is a customized Google map that can be used on a smart phone or connected tablet.
First organized in 2004 the Tour has continued thanks to the efforts of volunteers and sponsors who believe our art community should be promoted. This year that effort has been undertaken by the Malaspina Arts Society.
