Sunday Signage > Studio Tour

This weekend is the annual studio tour, the biggest art event of the year. Sponsored by the Gabriola Arts Council, the tour brings visitors from all over the province to see and purchase the creations of local artists. Factoid: Also known as the Island Of The Arts, tiny Gabriola (57 sq. km.) has the fifth highest density (per capita) of working artists in all of Canada.

Well that alone makes me want to pack my bags and come there. As soon as you all get a TJ Maxx and a Target, I'll think about moving! :)

PS Nice BW!

Looks like more pleasant surroundings than the St. Louis open studio weekend. Our artists tend toward cheap space in the more run down parts of town. I like the graphic sense of this. For some reason, when I saw this on the portal my mind's ear started hearing "number nine...number nine..." from the Beatles white album.
