BURLINGTON, ON.  It’s that time of year again – Halloween yes – but much more interesting is the Annual Art in Action Studio tour which this year will include 29 artistes in eight locations.

This Studio Tour event is now in its 11th year. There are some of the old standards and at couple of places that might better be given a rest but this is still very much a superb opportunity to get out and see what the city’s arts community has to offer.

Premier Arts event for November in the city. Not to be missed.

If this event is one that you’ve done in the past there is an opportunity to see the growth in artists you’ve watched and see how they have perhaps grown and changed.

There are two we have been watching and appreciating the changes, the growth and the new directions they are going in.  Last year there were a few that weren’t on the tour and we missed them.

The tour lasts two days.  You will find yourself bumping into the same people at different locations and striking up friendships and talking about what you saw that you liked.

November 2 and 3. 

A Helen Griffiths piece. This artist continues to both surprise and delight.

Art in Action runs the Studio Tour which gives artists exposure which never hurts.  The organization also has a scholarship is gives each year.  Last year  $1,500  went to Michelle Nguyen, a Robert Bateman High School graduate studying landscape architecture at the University of Guelph.

Fratesi has pieces at the Burlington Art Centre where her work can be rented from the Art Bank

Cheryl Goldring and Don Graves handle fundraising for the group which pay for studio tour advertising and scholarships.

New to the Studio Tour this year are: Tamara Kwapich (Studio 5), Lois Shaw (Studio 6) and Donna Fratesi (Studio 1) and  Rachel Quinteros (Studio 4)
