Salt Spring Artists' Studio Tour

Salt Spring Island – Artists’ Studios and Art Galleries Tour

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Salt Spring Island (xwənen̕əč) is renowned internationally as an enchanted island community with a high density of artists. On March 2nd, 14 hardy AHVSGA students boarded the ferry to Salt Spring in sunny but unseasonable wintry weather for a day-long field trip touring artists’ studios and art galleries. Many thanks to the gallery directors and all the artists who shared their insights, passion and explanation of their work and studio practices. Several described how the natural beauty of their island inspired their subject matter, and on a personal note, how challenging and formative life experiences drove their creative process and artworks.
