Artists from the ‘Lake-to-Lake Studio Tour’ invite you to visit their Summer Showcase Exhibition at Dogtown Coffee Company in Okanagan Falls, August 1-31 Art studio tours are a popular summer pastime—especially the self-guided tours which encourage visitors to drop in to meet the artists and see how the work is done.
From August 1-31, the “Lake-to-Lake Studio Tour” artists are presenting a group show of their work at the popular Dogtown Coffee Company’s gallery in Okanagan Falls. The exhibition provides an opportunity to see a showcase of work from these artists all in one place, with the opportunity to follow up those which interest you most as you map out your route along the Corkscrew Drive on the Vaseux Lake-to-Penticton corridor.
The self-guided studio tours are in their third year of operation, and there are similar tour routes in Summerland and on the Naramata Bench. The “Lake-to-Lake” tour includes studios which lie between Vaseux Lake and Okanagan Lake. The route takes you to 12 studios, and includes sculptors, painters and mixed media artists. It’s a great opportunity to look, listen and watch; to ask questions and to see how the art is created. You may ﬁnd yourself making new friends with art and the artist.
